Volkswagen Amarok made a power demonstration

Volkswagen thought that the introduction of the Amarok pick-up was simply not enough and that is why the company decided to go further away and then came up with a rather weird idea. It used the new model to tear down a very tall (67 m) steel chimney weighing 140 tons.
Before de demolition started the chimney was prepared so that during the action there won't be any incidents.
The pick-ups that had a 2.0-liter TDI engine and developed 163 PS of power were attached with a rope to the top of the chimney. Also there were taken some security measures to protect the drivers in case of an unpredictable situation.
The price for the Volkswagen Amarok starts from GBP21,343 and you can purchase it starting May 9.
The power demonstration was to prove that the vehicle is ready to be launched and that it has a lot to offer.
