A rare first-generation Volkswagen Touareg V10 TDI has been spotted in a poor state at a used car dealership in Pune.

The SUV gets a 5.0-litre V10 diesel engine that makes 309 BHP and 750 Nm paired to a 6-speed automatic transmission. Internationally, the car failed to meet US emission regulations and the engine was eventually replaced by a V6 TDI engine.

As part of an advertising campaign, a V10 TDI Toureg was used to pull a Boeing 747. It holds the world record for the heaviest load towed by a passenger car.
