Spy photographers have caught Volkswagen's single cab Amarok undergoing testing near the Nürburgring.

Snapped undisguised, the single cab Amarok is essentially a basic version of the dual cab Amarok. Styling changes are minor but include a longer truck bed and a lengthened B-pillar which conceals additional storage capacity behind the front seats.

While nothing is official, the primary engine will be a 2.0-liter four-cylinder TDI with 120 kW (161 hp / 163 PS) and 400 Nm (295 lb-ft) of torque. Regardless, speculation seems to suggest a 2.0-liter four-cylinder flex-fuel petrol may also be offered. This would be important for the Brazilian market, where ethanol is a big seller. The single cab could also be introduced with an automatic transmission - a first for the Amarok.

Look for more information to be released ahead of the truck's launch in early 2011.
