German dealer creates VW Amarok Colt Seavers Edition [w/video]
The "CS Edition" of the Volkswagen truck is a tribute to Colt Seavers, the main character of the ABC television program, "The Fall Guy," which aired from 1981 to 1986.
In the show, Seavers, played by Lee Majors, was a Hollywood stuntman, moonlighting as a bounty hunter. He would use his knowledge of stunts, especially involving his truck: a 1980 GMC Sierra Grande 4X4.
While Volkswagen does not have a 3/4 ton pickup in its portfolio, the Amarok was deemed a suitable starting point from which to create the "CS Edition." The 80's-inspired machine was built by a German VW dealer in collaboration with Delta 4X4, an off-road accessories manufacturer in the Middle East.
The package features the same gold-on-brown paint scheme with red pinstriping from the show, as well as a front push bar. Delta 4X4 also installed a rollbar with a set of four headlights, courtesy of Hella.
The cost of the whole package is 51,695 €, or about $62,698 at today's conversion rates. The price is roughly double the cost of a standard Amarok, but if you are a fan of 80's action/adventure shows, living in Europe, it's clearly worth it.
If you need a refresher on the truck from the original show, we've included a few photos in the gallery, and a video below.
