(from MTM Press Release) VW Amarok - tailor-made for eight cylinders

As a technology partner of the Dirks Group in Emden, MTM is unveiling a Volkswagen Amarok, which both outwardly as well in actuality puts every previous interpretation of the Amarok in the shade: instead of a two litre, four cylinder turbo diesel engine, in this case there is a V8 4.2 TDI under the bonnet. And the engine is just the ticket; fits like a glove. The 410 hp and 930 Nm of torque command attention with sensational driving performance: the V8 Passion reaches 100 km/h from a standing start in six seconds with a top speed of 222 km/h. To enable the driver to call on this without any driver acrobatics, the rear axle had to say goodbye to leaf springs. A Panhard rod combined with air springs now ensures rock solid axle guidance. Unlike the production Amarok, disc brakes now feature on the rear axle as well. An MTM brake (405 x 36 mm) provides the restraining force on the front axle and the BBS SV wheels, specially fabricated for SUVs, are shod with Michelin Latitude 295/40 22s. All in all an imposing appearance, the interior of which keeps the promise made by the cut of its jib.
