As SingleCab with XL single cab and in combination with almost 6 cm wheel arch extensions and 80 mm lowering not only a visual powerhouse – the power pickup from Hannover can actually draw on plentiful: its V6 TDI generates 3-liter whopping 200 kW ( 272 hp). The enormous torque of 600 Nm is distributed via 8-speed automatic transmission to the four permanently driven wheels. So accelerated reached the Wörthersee study after only 7.9 seconds, 100 km / h threshold. Not bad for a car whose cargo area with over 3.5 m2 – offers easy place for a racing kart, including full workshop equipment – as in the case shown. Or in real life space for two Euro pallets. Just a real workhorse of Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles – but with an emphasis on animal.

The strongest of all time Amarok distinguishes itself with a fully modified exterior and interior equipment: For the Volkswagen Commercial Vehicle designers have missed the Wörthersee study with a well-coordinated refinements independent presentation and at the same time the technical requirements of the 272-hp V6 TDI taken into account engine.

Also at the rear of the Amarok top model differs significantly from the series. Here it is next to a carbon diffuser and two outside positioned dual tailpipes, especially the newly developed, darkened tail lights. They work with fast response and long-lasting LED technology and form an easily recognizable graphics night.

Inside, the right to the GTI meet black, red and white color scheme continues: door panels, racing bucket seats, sport steering wheel and extra wide, new center console are covered with black carbon leather and nubuck. Accents are set by the red stitching and trims in “brushed aluminum look.” Gauges in the well covered with black leather instrument panel indicate the torque and the boost pressure of the engine while the stopwatch button measures the acceleration time. As befits such a show car, of course, is not only outside, but also inside catered for as Sound: The performance of the infotainment system with integrated 8-inch touchscreen strengthen cooled amplifier with 2x 380 watts and a mounted between the racing clamshells subwoofer with 500 watts.

Also for the physical welfare of the GTI fans will be provided – The famous original Volkswagen curry sausage, there are also at the Wörthersee, served fresh from the Volkswagen Bulli.
