Volkswagen’s sporty Amarok R-style concept made its debut at the Worthersee festival. The Amarok, which is equipped with a six-cylinder turbodiesel engine, was introduced at Worthersee alongside the Design Vision GTI with an output of 500hp. The Amarok R-style concept features extended wheel well arches and gunmetal-colored 22-inch wheels covered by 295/35 tires.
A 2.0-liter turbodiesel I-4 powers the regular Amaroks. However, a 3.0-liter turbodiesel I-4 with about 270 hp and 443 lb-ft of torque is used for the Worthersee Amarok. Meanwhile, the U.S.-spec Volkswagen Touareg TDI is capable of delivering 406 lb-ft from its 3.0-liter turbodiesel engine. The sport truck is at its optimal level as it is mated to an eight-speed automatic and all-wheel drive.
As a result, it can accelerate from zero to 62 mph in 7.9 seconds. The Worthersee Amarok is aesthetically enhanced with its red and black accents on the truck’s side. It has a carbon fiber accent on the lower front fascia. It also gets red brake calipers.
It features HID headlights, darkened LED taillights and dual exhaust outlets incorporated into the bumper. The red and black accents will continue to its interior, which will also get the eight-inch touch screen. It also comes with a stopwatch and gauges to calculate torque and boost pressure.
