2013 Worthersee Tour: Vw debuts the Amarok R-Style Concept

Article by Christian A., on May 12, 2013

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.

3 versions. Each a unique creation. Each one guaranteeing top class performance. Each one an Amarok. Each one a Volkswagen.

The base model of the Volkswagen Amarok is fitted with window lifts, manual mirror adjustment, and door locking mechanisms that are expected, given its tough and exclusively mechanical components. It also comes with adjustable front seats, variable folding rear bench seat, truck bed lighting, and locking glove box. The base model is guaranteed heavy duty, with its unpainted door handles, mirrors, and front bumper. The base has one distinct feature in the radio and navigation system whose antennas are exquisitely meshed in the door mirrors.

Next on the list is the Volkswagen Amarok Trendline. The Trendline has more convenience features than the base models, thus making it a rung higher than the base. Unlike the base which comes mostly uncoloured, the Trendline’s body colour is evident in the mirror housings, the door handles, and the front bumper. If the base is mostly manual and mechanical, the Trendline is electrically powered in the door locks, windows, and mirror adjusters.

Trendline is built as a powerful truck and this is emphasized by its 16-inch alloy wheels. For better convenience, the Trendline has been equipped with semi-automatic climate control system (Climatic), a system for cruise control, front fog lights, multi-functional display, and a radio that comes with a CD player.

And finally, there is the Volkswagen Amarok Highline, the top dog in the Amarok line. It offers exclusive features not found in the other Amarok models, like a higher performance sound system and fabric seat covers. With the Trendline as its base, the Amarok Highline has upgraded part-chrome mirror housings.

It boasts of multiple chrome accents both in and out of the truck, while its 17-inch alloy wheels are given adequate space by its body coloured fender flares. On top of these, the Amarok Highline also features instrument panels that showcase colour contrast, while its Climatronic automatic climate control system makes the Highline drive smooth and comfortable.
