VW’s sharp new Polo is a very well rounded car that offers high levels of refinement along with vast amounts of practicality, however, it is not the most exciting hatchback on the market. Next year the German manufacturer will enter the WRC and to celebrate this they are launching the fastest Polo ever.
Dubbed the Polo R WRC, we first saw this car in concept guise earlier this year and the good news not a lot has changed in order to make it production ready. Sporting VW’s WRC livery this 2.0 litre turbocharged Polo can get from 0-62MPH in 6.4 seconds and go onto a top speed of 151MPH. Power is rated at 217BHP with 258lbft of torque for company. Being at heart a VW Polo, the WRC will still get you a respectable 38MPG.
The VW Polo R WRC will cost €33,900 but there is no word on whether it will come to the UK.
