Every year Volkswagen owners and enthusiasts from all over Europe
gather in the Austrian village Reifnitz at the lake Worthersee to celebrate the brand and its products. During
the four days of the “GTI meeting at the Wörthersee” up to 150,000 visitors come to Reifnitz. This year, from
12th-15th May, the festival takes place for the 29th time, and Volkswagen Commercial participates in it for the
first time with the Amarok, Volkswagen's new utility. Three Amarok and some iconic camper vans will be exhibited
The Volkswagen Amarok, which is produced in the Volkswagen plant in Pacheco in Argentina, has four doors, and
customers can choose between two diesel motors which are economical and high-torque at the same time. The motors
have 90 kW or, as a BiTurbo, 120 kW. Next to a rear-wheel drive unit there are two all-wheel units – permanent
or connectible with reduction gear unit. The Volkswagen Amarok is a double cab with room for five persons.
"The GTI meeting is one of the worlds biggest gatherings of Volkswagen enthusiasts, so the Volkswagen Amarok
as a brand new product simply has to be here of course", Dr. Wolfgang Schreiber, spokesman for the board of
management of Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles says.
Teams from Volkswagen Nutzfahrzeuge Oldtimer and the Service Factory are participating in the event as well:
They sell the legendary Volkswagen Currywurst, a special German sausage, from two iconic camper vans.
