Volkswagen has uncovered what could be the first hint at a hot new performance-focused Amarok ute.
The sporty new Amarok Concept Worthersee 2013 was revealed at the weekend’s Volkswagen fan show in Austria, boasting a punchy 3.0-litre turbo diesel V6 engine producing 200kW of power and 600Nm of torque.Â
The engine is teamed to an eight-speed automatic, with power sent to all four wheels. VW claims the concept can sprint from 0-100kmh in 7.9 seconds – about a second slower than the current Golf GTI.
VW Commercial Vehicles CEO Dr Eckhard Scholz has confirmed he wants to see a performance-focused Amarok become a reality.
