THE first Amarok double-cab pick-up will be unveiled by Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles during next month’s CV Show at the Birmingham NEC.

It will mark the German manufacturer’s return to the show and will be supported by a line-up of nine other models.

The recently launched Caddy and Caddy Maxi panel vans, Transporter in panel van and kombi form as well as examples of the Crafter panel van and chassis cabs will be joined by the Transporter shuttle and Caravelle people carriers.  

And continuing a life in the spotlight which has spanned 60 years, will be a model from Volkswagen’s heritage collection in the shape of a fully restored 1954 split-screen ‘barn-door’ Transporter.

Completing the line-up will be the premiere of a new Caddy Racer, to be unveiled ahead of its debut - at the hands of Volkswagen’s CV chief Simon Elliott - at the opening round of the 2011 Volkswagen Racing Cup at Oulton Park on April 25.

On returning to the CV Show and the Amarok premiere, Elliott said: “Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles is proud to be back at this year’s CV Show, which is a very important date in the commercial vehicle calendar.

“We are extremely excited to finally introduce the Amarok to the UK buyers, showcase the diversity, versatility and competitiveness of our vans and people carriers, and I also can’t wait to see my new Caddy Racer for the first time.”

The CV Show runs at the NEC from April 12-14.
