Limited-edition Volkswagen Amarok 580S V6 revealed but it might not come to SA


As much as we can try to remember, Volkswagen has quite a number of limited-edition models of the Amarok.

That proves how special the Amarok is to the VW folks and there is nothing wrong with that. News sources in Australia state that a limited-edition Volkswagen V6 Amarok is going on sale in June and it will carry the 580S insignia.

Only 200 units of the Amarok 580S V6 will be sold in Australia – there is no word on local availability as yet but CarAdvice says that it will be launched nationally next month in dealerships and online. 

It wears 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.

It runs on 20-inch ‘Talca’ alloys, wrapped in Bridgestone Dueler highway tyres. On the inside, the Amarok V6 580S gets Art velour trim, with heated front seats.

Power comes from a 3.0-litre turbocharged V6 diesel engine with 190 kW of power and 580 Nm of torque. 200 kW is available for short spurts.

This runs through a ZF 8-speed automatic gearbox powering all four wheels without a low-range transfer case.
