A force to be reckoned with.

Walkinshaw, Australia’s leading producer of automotive performance cars, has teamed up with Volkswagen to create a ute for the driver that likes to forge their own path. It’s both powerful and dynamic, with bold and aggressive styling.

The partnership sees the Volkswagen brand once again producing vehicles from its ancestral Australian home of Clayton, the site of the original Volkswagen assembly plant from 1953, and current home to Walkinshaw Automotive Group.

The Volkswagen product seems to lend itself to a very high performance, GT-image. You’ve got that terrific V6 diesel engine with class-leading torque; and it really does deserve a performance flagship in the range.
