2021 Volkswagen Amarok W580 revealed

The 2021 Volkswagen Amarok W580 has joined the growing list of top-end utes, as Australians continue to buy record numbers of workhorses turned into show ponies. Unlike the Ford Ranger Raptor, Toyota HiLux Rugged X, and Nissan Navara Warrior, the VW Amarok W580 has been designed with a focus on on-road performance, although extra ground clearance and Pirelli Scorpion tyres will also boost its off-road ability.

The external aesthetic is defined by exposed carbon fibre panelling, a large front splitter, and a gooseneck-mounted rear spoiler. To reduce drag on the KTM, traditional wing mirrors are replaced with rear-view cameras projecting to internal display screens.

Chrysler Drifter SRT imagined as modern-day panel van

Panel vans were an icon of Australian culture in the 1970s, providing young people with the freedom and accommodation to escape a more conservative society. While Holden's Sandman is the most well-known, the Ford Sundowner and Chrysler Drifter were also a big part of surf culture at the time. Estonian designer Rain Prisk – known for creating two-door wagon models on his Instagram page – has rendered what he's named a Dodge Challenger Hearse.
