When it comes to the ingenuity of the automotive aftermarket, a good bit of inspiration often seems to come from the creator's native market. Lifted Jeep Wrangler creations climb out of mountainous regions like Moab, while low-riders flow from the massive urban sprawl of Los Angeles. The vehicle you see above is no different. Dubbed the "Snowareg," it is a creation by Volkswagen of Sweden, and is perfectly suited for harsh Swedish winters. Based on a Touareg V8 TDI, the Snowareg sends 340 horsepower and 590 pound-feet of torque to a modified set of treads at each wheel.

Very little information is given outside of that, but from what we can tell from these photos, anyone lucky to venture into the elements with the Snowareg will be doing so in style. It appears to come with the full bevy of VW options, including Dynaudio stereo, panoramic moonroof, dual-zone climate control and (of course) heated seats. As we said, very little information was given, but it's a fair assumption that this monster isn't foreshadowing any future options packages...

      Several companies are out there to help you do this to just about any 4wd. Didn't Ken Block have a Subaru like this in one of the videos?

      Come to northern Minnesota where they convert US vans to tracked drive for taking ice fishermen out on the big lakes.

      Haven't we by now established that there are several options for doing this on any lifted 4x4? I've seen an article like this at least 5 times here, and I've been to auto shows with the treads on various vehicles.

      hope they made the VW warming system more powerful for cold winters, they tend to be kinda underpowered
