Volkswagen_Amarok_R_Style_04

The 2013 Wörthersee Tour GTI Treffen has sure kept the Volkswagen Group busy. SEAT will be showing off its wild Leon Cup Racer concept, Skoda has its Rapid Sport Concept and Volkswagen, traditionally the main attraction of the show, will have the Design Vision GTI and this, the Volkswagen Amarok R-Style concept to keep the crowd entertained.

This sports truck concept based on a single cab Volkswagen Amarok looks fit enough to be a Mopar show star with its 22-inch wheels, custom bodykit, slammed looks and blinged-out lights. If Volkswagen ever releases an Amarok R, the design sketches released earlier this week is not a bad start.

There’s some go to match the show, as there’s a tuned turbocharged 3.0 litre TDI engine with 272 hp and 600 Nm under the hood, connected to an eight-speed automatic ‘box and a permanent 4motion system. The 0-100 km/h sprint is over in 7.9 seconds.

It’s just too bad that leaked photos of the real thing show a much more restrained concept. The sporty interior is all bespoke though, and it looks mighty good. We’ve also included pictures of the standard car in double cab guise below for you to compare. Too extreme for you? Then maybe the Amarok Canyon is more your style.
