This is a rather unusual way for an impending launch to be leaked out. A German model car company has let slip images of its next product – the new Volkswagen Touareg that’s supposed to be previewed at the Geneva show!

How do we know it’s new? This diecast sports VW’s new corporate face, already seen on products like the Golf, Polo and Amarok pick-up truck. The shape of the SUV also looks more rounded compared to the current car, brining it closer in looks to sister car Porsche Cayenne. The box or catalogue reads fourth quarter 2010, so could this be the launch date of the real car as well?

One more image after the jump!
