New VW Amarok Power Pickup Concept in the Flesh

The first real life photos of one of Volkswagen’s concept cars for the 2013 edition of the Wörthersee Tour fan-fest in Austria, the Amarok Power Pickup Truck, have landed on the digital world known as the internet. We’ll just go and say it that, from these images, the Amarok concept doesn’t look as impressive or rather, aggressive, as the official sketches released on Tuesday suggested, which could possibly be explained by the less hunkered down ride of the real life model. You can find full details about the truck study in our initial posting here, but to recap, the Wörthersee Tour Amarok sports a body kit and large 22-inch wheels, together with a raft of racy upgrades for the interior and the fitment of a 3.0-liter turbocharged V6 diesel (TDI) that kicks out 268hp (272PS / 200kW) and a peak torque of 600Nm (442 lb-ft). An 8-speed automatic and an all-wheel drive system transfer power on the road, with VW quoting 0-100km/h (62mph) acceleration time of 7.9 seconds. Story References: Autowp
