Test Drive an Amarok, Win STIHL Chainsaws

What could possibly be manlier than buying a pickup truck and filling it up with chainsaws? How about buying a pickup truck that's already filled with chainsaws for a change.

This next offer could only come from Volkswagen Australia, who collaborated with powertool makers STIHL in order to reward those who test drive their Amarok.

Want a new leaf blower or a hedge trimmer? Just test drive the Amarok at the local dealer and you'll be entered in the competition with a chance to win a share of the $250,000 worth of manly gear. You can even book a test drive online at, but you'll have to be quick about it, because the offer ends on May 31st.

It's nice to see that VW is offering this equipment in a country where just about every critter is trying to kill you. The leaf blower can work just fine as a scorpion blower, the hedge trimmer will ideal for fighting deadly snakes and the chainsaw… well that's for when the zombies come, of course.

The ruggedest of Volkswagen utes was launched in 2010, but didn't make to Australia until 2011. It received a 5-star rating from the Australasian New Car Assessment Program and is sold as a single cab, dual cab, with2WD and 4Motion.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s.
