The Volkswagen Race Touareg 3 is the third iteration of Volkswagen's rally-raid competitor. Following back-to-back Dakar Rally wins in 2009 and 2010 for the Race Touareg 2, the platform received a generational update for the 2011 race.

To visually bring it in line with the second-gen Touareg road car, the Race Touareg 3 was modified with LED headlights and a new front grille. The 5-speed sequential transmission was upgraded, while the 2.5-litre twin-turbocharged diesel engine was retuned for economy and extreme altitude changes.[1]

The success of the previous two years carried over for 2011, with all three Volkswagens finishing on the podium. Nasser Al-Attiyah took the win, followed by his teammates Giniel de Villiers in second and Carlos Sainz third.[2]
