Volkswagen Amarok Dark Label

Volkswagen, the German brand, is one of the world’s leading automobile manufacturers and the largest car maker in Europe. The company has developed centers and services in the entire world, including the U.K. And the British market is exactly the place they are aiming for with the release of a Volkswagen Amarok Dark Label special edition.

The Volkswagen Amarok Dark Label special edition will publicly debut on October 22nd and is distinguished by a two-tone exterior with extended wheel arches, tinted windows and a front skid plate. The model also received matte black side steps, tinted taillights and 18-inch alloy wheels with a black finish. Inside the vehicle we notice Alcantara upholstery and special velour floor mats. The truck also has a multi-functional steering wheel, heated front seats, a leather-wrapped gear knob and an infotainment system with GPS navigation.

The Volkswagen Amarok Dark Label special edition is powered by a 2.0-liter BiTDI engine that develops 180 PS (132 kW) and up to 420 Nm (310 lb-ft) of torque. This can be linked to either a six-speed manual or an eight-speed automatic transmission. Models equipped with the latter gearbox are also equipped with a number of fuel saving tweaks including a start/stop system, regenerative braking and low rolling-resistance tires. The edition will be limited to 300 units and each one of them costs £26,125 (OTR).
