Volkswagen’s special ‘Dark Label’ version of its Amarok pickup, revealed overseas earlier this month, is on its way to Australia.
Limited to 300 units, the Amarok Dark Label Edition will arrive here early next year, although the order books are open now.
The new special, described as the “the most exclusive and dynamic Amarok model yet”, will hit Australia in two forms: TDI400 manual and TDI420 auto.
Both versions are based on the existing Highline model, with pricing beginning at $56,990 for the TDI400 and topping out at $59,990 for the 420.
Features beyond the Highline's standard kit include bi-xenon headlights, LED daytime lamps and smoked tail-lights, along with a matte-black finish to the ‘sports bar’, side steps, mirror caps, door handles and rear bumper.
A black finish has also been applied to the Dark Label’s 18-inch alloy wheels.
In the cabin, there’s Alcantara trim and heated front seats, along with a carbon-fibre look to the seat bolsters and tailored floor mats.
As with the current range, the Dark Label models feature the Amarok’s familiar 2.0 litre four-cylinder turbodiesel, producing 132kW and 400Nm in manual form (TDI400), while torque is boosted to 420Nm (TDI420) with the eight-speed auto.
