It might not look exactly like this but a new Polo GTI could do well to take some styling cues from this Polo Woerthersee 09. Maybe the stripes are slightly overboard for a mass-market hot hatch but they still look proper on this one.

The VW Golf GTI "Wörthersee 09" has been seen. Now it's the turn of little brother Polo Woerthersee 09, a sort of preview of what a higher performance Polo could look like. The Polo Woerthersee 09 is actually based on a standard 1.4 MPI Polo with 63kW (83hp).

Painted in the same flaming red colour as the Golf GTI "Wörthersee 09", the Polo features two contrasting black rally stripes that flow from the bottom front bumper all the way to the rear bumper. The black color is also found on the front mesh grille, the backdrop of the headlights, and on the side mirrors. The five-blade 18-inch alloys that are wrapped by low profile tyres are highlighted in black as well. While the single tailpipe remains, its sound has been enhanced to reflect the sporty nature of the rest of the car.

The interior received black nappa leather seats with contrasting white sides and red stitching. This stitching is also found around the flat-bottomed leather steering wheel, on the handbrake lever, the gear lever and the door trims.
