- Volkswagen Polo R WRC Concept, 2012
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. 220 kW / 300 PS power output, which ensures impressive acceleration from naught to 100 km/h in 4.1 seconds.
