Volkswagen is the official vehicle partner of the 2014 Winter Olympic in Sochi, Russia and as a result, the German carmaker is supplying over 3,000 Volkswagen, Audi, Skoda as well as other commercial vehicles to the games. Still, the Polar Expedition Amarok, which the company built a year ago, is the most interesting.
For those who don’t know, the Polar Expedition Amarok was built to promote the 2014 Winter Olympic in Sochi, and three units took nine people from Moscow to the city of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky in a 9,942 miles journey. The team earned a Guiness World Record for the longest off-road journey through a single country.
As you can see from the photos, the vehicles were overhauled and now feature heavy-duty shocks, big tires and extra large fenders. Despite their appearance, the vehicles are still powered by the 2.0-liter turbo diesel engine. Inside, the vehicles feature a roll cage as well as extra navigation equipment.
