Volkswagen Polo R WRC
For more than 30 years, the ‘GTI Meeting at Wörthersee’ has been a holiday in the calendar of fans of sporty Volkswagen vehicles.
With the newly developed Polo R WRC, Volkswagen Motorsport is presenting a road-going prototype for the FIA World Rally Championship. The "hottest Polo ever" – as it was called by Volkswagen Head of Development Dr. Ulrich Hackenberg even at its first official airing – will be starting its tour around the globe from 2013 at numerous WRC races. At the heart of this racing version beats a 1.6 l TSI engine with approx. 295 hp (220 kW / 300 PS) power output, which ensures impressive acceleration from naught to 100 km/h in 4.1 seconds.
