If you’ve been following Tachoblog for any length of time, you’ll doubtless know that we’re eagerly anticipating the Volkswagen Amarok.  So we’ll be off to the NEC in Birmingham (England) to see the first UK example of the double-cab Amarok pick-up.

VW Amarok 427x274
The four-wheel drive Amarok will headline the Volkswagen stand in Hall 5, at Birmingham’s NEC from 12-14 April, and will be supported by a line-up of nine other models.  This display will showcase each of the competitive and surprisingly affordable models in the Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles panel van and passenger carrying ranges.

Examples of the recently launched Caddy and Caddy Maxi panel vans, Transporter in panel van and kombi form as well as examples of the Crafter panel van and chassis cabs will be joined by the Transporter shuttle and Caravelle people carriers.

In addition to these models, and continuing a life in the spotlight which has spanned 60 years, will be a model from Volkswagen’s heritage collection in the shape of a fully restored 1954 split-screen ‘barn-door’ Transporter – a model that has become a legend of great design and durability.

Completing the stellar line-up will be the premiere of a new Caddy Racer.  Based on the recently launched model, the new Caddy Racer will be unveiled ahead of its debut, once again at the hands of Simon Elliott, Director of Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles, at the opening round of the 2011 Volkswagen Racing Cup, on 25 April at Oulton Park.

Talking about the CV Show and the Amarok premiere, Simon Elliott told Tachoblog, “Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles is proud to be back at this year’s CV Show, which is a very important date in the commercial vehicle calendar.

“We are extremely excited to finally introduce the Amarok to the UK buyers, showcase the diversity, versatility and competitiveness of our vans and people carriers, and I also cannot wait to see my new Caddy Racer for the first time!’

If you want to be one of the first to see the Amarok and the new Caddy Racer, they will be unveiled on the Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles stand, Hall 5 on Tuesday 12 April at 9:30 am, and will be followed by the opportunity to meet two world class darts players – James Wade and Mark Webster – who are sponsored by Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles.

Tachoblog will see you there!
