Volkswagen: Amarok V6 Too Powerful For TV

In this commercial

Volkswagen Australia unveiled its new TV commercial. The advert was created by the advertising agency DDB Sydney.

The marketing message is:

“We made the most powerful ute ad ever, for the most powerful ute in its class. Turns out it was ‘too powerful’ to broadcast. 580Nm. You can basically stop reading now if you want to. Because that number right there is everything. It’s what you’ll stand around the BBQ comparing with your mates. It’s what’ll get you up that hill. Tow that boat.

It’s what’ll give you the confidence ‘out there’ to tackle just about anything. And it’s partly the reason the ad we made was deemed too powerful to show you.

Confidence seems to be a bit of a theme with the Amarok V6, and why wouldn’t it be? When you’ve got a class-leading 3.0 litre Turbo Diesel putting out 200kW on Overboost, and doing 0-100 km/h in 7.3 seconds, you’re going to start acting a little confident. Hell, you might even go ahead and make an ad that you can’t show anyone because it’s too epic.

The 580Nm Amarok V6 might be too powerful for us to advertise, but it’s not too powerful for you to test drive. Hit the link, and book one for yourself. Besides, power this intense is better felt, than seen.

The film is directed by Adam Stevens (Goodoil Films production company)
