Volkswagen Amarok R-Style concept revealed

Official images of the awesome Volkswagen Amarok R-Style concept ute have been revealed, just ahead of its 2013 Worthersee festival debut in Austria.

Volkswagen Amarok R-Stype concept

As previewed yesterday, the R-Style showcases a cool performance theme. There’s muscly pumped wheel arches which widen the Amarok by 60mm. There’s also chunkier front and rear bumper bars that extended further towards the ground for a lower stance, as well as a number of carbon fibre highlights for that contrasting white and black theme.

Under the bonnet sits a 3.0-litre turbo-diesel V6 engine producing a manly 200kW of power and 600Nm of torque. It’s good for 0-100km/h in 7.9 seconds.
