The 25th edition of Le Tour De Langkawi (LTDT) will continue to see Volkswagen to be their Official Car Sponsor. This will be the 3rd time Volkswagen becoming the official car of LTDT since 2016. The car that is chosen to be used throughout the race is the Volkswagen Tiguan. VPCM will be providing a total of 120 units of the Tiguan Highline, which will be used throughout the race by riders, safety marshals and officials.
Volkswagen sold more than 5 million units of the Tiguan globally, which is the most successful Volkswagen SUV inside their line-up. The Tiguan is an SUV that redefined new standards in design, comfort and functionality. The Tiguan is powered by a 1.4L turbocharged direct injection TSI engine with a 6-speed wet clutch direct shift gearbox (DSG) to give an impressive output of 150PS and a torque of 250Nm between 1,500 to 3,500rpm.
Erik Winter, Managing Director of VPCM expressed the brand’s delight to once again be a part of one of the world’s most renowned road cycling competitions. “We are honoured to be back as part of LTDL this year as the race celebrates its silver jubilee, and we are confident that the Tiguan will be a good fit and support to the operations team in terms of safety, endurance, agility and speed. On behalf of Volkswagen, we wish the participants all the very best for this year’s race.”
