Wolfsburg/Lugano, June 21, 2013: Ian Thorpe, Australian swimming star and Volkswagen ambassador, has taken delivery of his new Touareg in Lugano.
“To swap my Golf convertible for a Touareg in the summer time feels a little odd, but the Touareg provides enough space and is thereby ideally geared to my needs. I am looking forward to driving it home,” said Thorpe.
The five-time gold medal-winner will drive the Volkswagen SUV from now on. Thorpe made a first appearance for Volkswagen while at the 2012 Olympic summer games in London.
