Usually when we talk about European cars that we want but aren't sold in the U.S., it is relegated to an awesome German V8 wagon, or some new hot hatch that we will never see. Among that list of forbidden fruit is the Volkswagen Amarok, and the latest special edition of the compact pickup just makes it seem like its creators are rubbing it in our collective faces.
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.
