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.

        Amen, brother. Either today's actors are a bunch of lazy wimps or impending litagation for injuries has the film industry running scared. What's next? Digitized horseback riders?

          What can I say? Men are not men anymore. Just a bunch of wimpy, lame, pansy, skinny jeans wearing metrosexuals. It is so sickening.

      I always thought it was cool that the Six Million Dollar Man did stunt work on the side. Besides, you'd need a bionic arm to buff out all of that damage.

      This makes TOTAL sense. I can't count the number of German friends who were HUGE fans of that show...and I as an American barely remember it!!

        When I was a wee lad, I used to love this show, I actually named my first dog after the show. I really wanted to name him Fall Guy, but my parents made me settle on simply Guy. I was young enough though that I don't recall anything about the show, just that it and the Dukes of Hazzard apparently sparked my interest in cars that is strong to this day.

      "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" I'd actually forgotten about this show, which I absolutely loved as a kid. The premise seems ripe for a redux!

      The main thing I remember from that show was Heather Thomas.
