Since its launch in March the new Volkswagen Amarok V6 has won rave reviews with van centres across the country reporting sell-outs and waiting lists to snap up the pickup truck.
Cordwallis Group took advantage of the option to have the vehicle sprayed by the factory and were the first dealer in the UK to do so.
The Amarok V6 with matte finish was brought in after the van centre noticed a growing trend in customers taking up the option for the effect.
They then went further by ordering the vehicle with 19” Canterra Alloys, Dust & Pollen Filter, Centre High Mounted LED Brake Lights, Automatic Headlights and Wipers, Load Compartment Coating, Electric Folding Mirrors, Leather Multi Function Steering Wheel with Paddle Shift and Cornering Fog Lights.
James Comyn, sales manager at Cordwallis Heathrow, said: “As soon as the new colour option became available we just knew we had to order it.
“It’s not a low cost option but we have had numerous requests from customers to wrap their vehicles so we thought if we could get the same effect from the factory that is covered under warranty then, why not.
“We ordered it straight away and we were the first dealer in the country to order one.
“In addition to the factory options we have painted the alloys, chrome rear bumper guards, chrome side and rear bars in black, and fitted a roll and lock cover and tinted the rear windows.”
James said that there has been a rise in demand for a Amarok V6 with the matte finish, adding: “We have wrapped three new Amarok V6 models in the last 6 months so there certainly is a demand and especially with company vehicles as customers can incorporate their companies logos or signage into the wrap.
“The benefits are mainly aesthetic with matte finishes but also there is no need to polish matte finishes so valeting and keeping the appearance great is very easy compared to normal metallic finishes.
“The Amarok V6 has already sold out and there are very few stock vehicles available in the network. Nearly every person that has driven one has ordered one as the performance and refinement on the new Amarok V6 is a massive improvement over the old model.
“Our customers loved the old model but as soon as they drive the new one, they are sold.”
Cordwallis Group Heathrow’s grey matte and high spec Amarok V6 demo is available for
£42,000 plus VAT - alternative Amaroks start at £30,495 plus VAT.
Cordwallis Group also has locations in Reading, Oxford and Maidenhead.
