autoreview.belpproject.com-- VW and North Sails have joined their forces to create a maritime inspired Volkswagen Touareg North Sails design study. Although certainly lacking sails and a proper hull, the concept vehicle nevertheless leaves a strong nautical impression. The concept SUV comes equipped with exclusive 19-inch rims and its front and rear fog-lights as well as built in side mirrors turn signal repeaters feature blue colored lenses and reflectors. Inside the car, there are even more elements drawn directly from a yacht near you. Boring velour floor mats are changed to an impressive set of natural teak wood flooring panels (damn, do I want these into my Santa Fe!) outlined with LED lighting strips (no, I don't want these); white Nappa leather is stitched in aquamarine zig-zag pattern; and the stainless steel entry strips carry the North Sail logo. On the center console one will also find a set of binoculars and a compass. Hopefully, there is a sextant somewhere, too.
