Volkswagen Amarok Polar Expedition

Being an official partner of the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Volkswagen is looking to capitalize on the arrangement. While the German auto maker is making a special edition truck for consumers to purchase, it’s the Volkswagen Amarok Polar Expedition truck that has us excited.

In addition to the 3,000 vehicles being provided to the Russia-based Winter Olympics, VW has also created three of these badass 4-wheelers to take 9 people on a nearly 10,000 mile journey from Moscow to the city of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky (earning a Guinness World Record in the process for longest off-road journey in a single country). While the vehicle’s body has remained mostly untouched (aside from the cut fenders of course), the suspension has been completely overhauled, and a set of massive knobby tires have been installed to tackle the snowy terrain. The VW Amarok keeps its 2.0 liter turbo diesel engine in tact, showing just how capable that motor really is.
