Volkswagen has released pricing for its new limited-edition Amarok V6 580S, with 200 examples coming to Australia from $70,990 plus on-road costs.
That pegs the Volkswagen Amarok 580S between the Amarok V6 Highline ($64,990 plus on-road costs) and the range-topping Amarok V6 Ultimate ($72,790 plus on-road costs).
It will be launched nationally next month in dealerships and online, and will be on sale in June.
Along with a unique ‘signature’ Carbon Steel Grey metallic paint, the Amarok V6 580S can also be had in Candy White and Deep Black with a pearl effect.
The Volkswagen Amarok V6 580S gains a body coloured sailplane-style moulded sports bar, along with some roof-mounted LED lights. These are two small 'ST8' bars, each putting out 86 watts and mounted onto some Amarok roof rails.
The tray gets a ‘premium’ roll cover, and the headlights are bi-xenon units with LED daytime running lights.
The driveline remains the same: a 3-litre turbocharged V6 diesel in it’s highest state of tune for the Amarok: 190kW (200kW on overboost) and 580Nm. This runs through a ZF 8-speed automatic gearbox powering all four wheels without a low-range transfer case.
Those wheels, by the way, are 20” ‘Talca’ alloys, wrapped in Bridgestone Dueler highway tyres. On the inside, the Amarok V6 580S gets Art velour trim, with heated front seats.
