Tuning Quickie: Oettinger's Volkswagen Amarok with 190HP

For Oettinger, tuning the Volkswagen Amarok 2.0 BiTDI didn't mean offering impressive exterior and interior modifications, neither insanely boosting the power, just simply rewriting some of the engine management software. But hey, it gets the job done.

The German pickup truck's diesel powertrain now delivers 190 hp, a 27 hp gain over the stock version. As for torque, the twin-turbocharged unit pushes out 430 Nm (317 lb-ft) at 1,500 rpm, and 450 Nm or 332 lb-f between 2,800-4,000 rpm.

Obviously, Oettinger's Amarok is also a tad faster accelerating from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 10.5 seconds (0.6 seconds faster than the factory model), and reaches a top speed of 187 km/h (116 mph).

The performance upgrade is available for €1,090.
