Early in December, Volkswagen unveiled the 2013 Polo R WRC racecar, along with a road-going version as well. Powered by a 300-horsepower 1.6L TSI four-cylinder engine and a six-speed sequential transmission, this racecar is sure to impress.
The Polo R WRC is the prototype for what will become Volkswagen’s production series racecar. A rally-inspired lower front spoiler with large air inlets and a spoiler on the rear edge of the roof are just some of the highlights of this sports vehicle.
This racecar has a custom aerodynamic body kit and a stripped interior that helps cut down on weight. A set of 18-inch alloy wheels with 215/35R18 tires propels this remarkably light vehicle around the track. Weighing in at just 2,645 lbs, the Polo R WRC has carbon and Kevlar on the doors, tailgate, and wheel arch extensions.
