MTM has announced plans to introduce a new tuning program for the Volkswagen Polo WRC Street at the Essen Motor Show.

Looking virtually identical to the standard model, the MTM Polo WRC has been equipped with a Clubsport chassis, KW shock absorbers and a high-performance braking system. The car also has special badging and 18-inch alloy wheels with Continental ContiSportContact 5 P tires.

Power is provided by a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that develops 315 HP (231 kW) - an increase of 95 HP (70 kW). This enables the hatchback to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in "a shade over four seconds" and hit a top speed "just short" of 260 km/h (161 mph).  If that's not impressive enough, MTM hinted they could offer a 380 HP (279 kW) variant.
