The single-cab Amarok Power ute concept is almost identical to the Power Pick-up concept that debuted at last year’s Wörthersee event, though trades the go-kart in the tray of the old version for a 5000-watt sound system and DJ equipment.
Packed into the Amarok’s 3.5m2
loading space is a Xone: 92 Allen & Heath DJ kit, a Pioneer CDJ900NXS player, two Void Acoustics Impulse 3t speakers, a Stasys Xair subwoofer and six micro speakers. All items fit fully installed and ready to use in a clever storage concept dubbed ‘compact cube’.
As with last year’s concept, the Amarok Power is powered by a 3.0-litre V6 TDI turbo diesel that produces 200kW and 600Nm. An eight-speed automatic transmission distributes drive to all four wheels through the brand’s 4Motion system.
Volkswagen claims a 7.9-second 0-100km/h time and a top speed of 210km/h.
The Amarok Power concept ride on 80mm-lowered suspension and massive 22-inch alloy wheels that fill its pumped guards.
Thin chrome grille bars and LED daytime running lights and an enlarged lower air intake create a unique look at the front, while smoked LED tail-lights, a black diffuser and twin chrome exhaust outlets add a sporty feel at the rear.
Black sports bars behind the cabin, orange and black decals and matching brake calipers add life to the concept’s deep metallic grey exterior.
The theme continues inside the cabin, which features orange stitching and highlights across the dashboard, centre console, air vents and seats. Carbonfibre-look trim embraces the dash and console, while sporty alcantara wraps around the steering wheel, gear lever, handbrake and console cover.
The Volkswagen Amarok Power concept will be seen – and heard – at Wörthersee in Austria from tomorrow.
