Like the Golf Concept, the Amarok has been unveiled at the annual Worthersee GTI gathering, attended by around 200,000 VW Group fans.
However, the Amarok has received a full make-over for the show, including switching the standard car’s 2.0-litre twin-turbo diesel engine for a 3.0-litre V6 TDI engine with 268bhp and 600Nm of torque.
This drives all four wheels through an eight-speed automatic gearbox, and means the Power-Pickup can complete the 0-62mph sprint in 7.9 seconds – the same time as a Polo BlueGT.
The exterior features wider wheelarches to make space for the 22-inch alloys. The suspension has been lowered by 80mm and the nose now features xenon headlights and larger air intakes. The rear now features a carbon-fibre diffuser and tinted tail-lights.
Inside, the dashboard, door trims and leather sports seats have a black, red and white colour theme. The Amarok also benefits from an uprated infotainment system with an eight-inch touchscreen and 500-watt subwoofer.
The Power-Pickup is based on the single-cab Amarok, and has been designed as a rolling workshop for a go-kart racer. The pickup features a flat cover over the load bed to store the kart, with space below to carry spare parts, tools and race equipment.
