A ONE-OFF Volkswagen Amarok designed exclusively for life in the Arctic Circle has been revealed with a raised ride height, huge all-terrain tyres - and a cappuccino maker.

The unique pick-up truck, modified by off-road specialists, Arctic Trucks, in partnership with local Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles dealer, Hekla, is currently being put to work in Iceland as a support vehicle for winter driving experiences, leading customers out onto the snow and ice.

The Volkswagen Amarok AT35 features a raft of updates to take the standard Amarok to the next level including a 25 mm front and rear suspension lift. New flared fibre-glass wheel-arches have been trimmed to accommodate the larger wheels and the 315/70R17 all terrain tyres - plus larger mud flaps front and back have been added.

Inside, the Amarok has been given an expedition makeover with a fire extinguisher, portable generator - and even a cappuccino machine. A VHF radio, toolbox, jack, first aid kit with defibrillator and work light are also included in the Arctic Trucks conversion.

Under the bonnet is the standard Amarok's 3.0-litre V6 diesel engine with 224 horsepower to ensure there's plenty of power to get through any snow drifts. The AT35 also retains the standard Amarok's 45-degree climbing ability, a payload of 1,154kg and hill descent assist.
