MTM VW Amarok V8 Passion Desert
MTM has revealed the Amarok V8 Passion Desert, essentially an off-road version of their previous V8 model.
This special version was developed in partnership with the DIRKS group. MTM will debut the VW Amarok V8 DESERT edition, which follows in the footsteps of cruising-oriented STREET model. The imposing double-cab pick-up houses a 4.2-litre V8 TDi engine developing 410 hp (302 kW) and 930 Nm of torque between 2,000 – 3,000 rpm.
The desert should quake when the Amarok V8 Passion DESERT is aroused. The MTM VW Amarok V8 Passion Desert is capable of a 0-62mph (100km/h) in 6 seconds, with the top speed rated at 240km/h (149mph), depending on the choice of tires. Speaking of which, the show car you see here is wearing a set of 305/50 Cooper off-road tires, mounted on BBS 10x20in alloy wheels.
The brakes have been upgraded to match the performance, measuring 405mm x 36mm at the front axle and 356 x 22mm at the rear.
The well-proven Cooper off-road tyres in size 305/50 ZR 20 are mounted on BBS 10 x 20″ rims and lend the DESERT a wilderness-ready appearance.
MTM says that the Amarok V8 Passion Desert will cost you around 200,000 euros (around $220k in current exchange rates)
