VW Tristar Concept 4×4 Utility pick up … we need it !!!

The recently revealed Tristar 4×4 pick up by VW at Hanover has already received a good following and many requests if production is to commence.

Based on the legendary Transporter, the sort wheel base, with the rear van section chopped away leaving a deep pick up base with a spare wheel carrier and a sealed trunk compartment.

Fitted with the 4motion 4wd system with raised suspension by 1.2”, a 2.0 ltr TDI engine with just over 200hp, a 7 speed duel clutch auto transmission giving a top speed of 115mph with a 0-62 mph in 10 seconds, not bad for a utility vehicle.
