Official sketches of the Volkswagen Amarok R-Style concept have surfaced ahead of its debut at the annual Worthersee show in Austria.

The Volkswagen Amarok R-Style is a sporty, street-themed concept that takes the German manufacturer’s workhorse to new levels of performance and urban appeal.

Powering the Amarok R-Style concept is a 200kW/600Nm 3.0-litre V6 turbo-diesel engine – a significant step-up from the 132kW/420Nm output of the flagship production model.

An eight-speed automatic transmission sends drive to all four wheels and launches the R-Style concept from 0-100km/h in 7.9 seconds.

Pumped wheel arches flare out 60mm wider than the production model’s to contain the 22-inch alloy wheels and 295/35 performance tyres.

LED headlights and tail-lights; carbonfibre front, side and rear skirts; a unique front intake; and a rear diffuser with dual chrome exhaust outlets set the R-Style apart from the outside, while sports seats, a sports steering wheel, carbonfibre dashboard and door panels and red trim accents headline the cabin tweaks.

The Volkswagen Amarok R-Style concept will debut at Worthersee alongside the Volkswagen Golf Design Vision GTI concept and the Skoda Rapid Sport concept, among others, from tonight.
