Fans treated to Amarok GTI


A FLOCK of Volkswagen fans were recently treated to something special at the annual GTI enthusiasts’ meeting at Lake Wörthersee in Austria.

We’re sure most of them were expecting an angrier version of the latest Golf GTI, but instead they were treated to something no one ever expected to see in GTI guise - the Amarok.

The Amarok Power-Pickup concept is powered by a 3.0-litre V6 TDI engine with a power output of 200kW and 600Nm of torque. This diesel powerhouse is mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission with Volkswagen’s permanent 4Motion all-wheel-drive.

The Power-Pickup is based on an Amarok single cab and is designed as a rolling workshop to carry spare parts, tools and race equipment, with performance to take it from standstill to 100km/h in 7.9 seconds.

The striking exterior design features widened wheel arches to accommodate 22-inch alloy wheels, 80mm lowered suspension, bi-xenon headlights with chrome surrounds, a chrome grille plus an enlarged lower air intake. At the rear there is also a carbon-fibre diffuser and dual exhausts, plus tinted taillights and red, white and black side decals.

Inside, the dashboard, door trims and exclusive Nubuck leather sports seats have a black, red and white colour theme. In-car entertainment is supplied via an infotainment system with an eight-inch touch screen and 500W subwoofer.
