Volkswagen Polo R WRC Concept & Street Concept Revealed

The racing variant will make its WRC debut next year and the Street will be launched in late 2013.
VW will present a road-going prototype of the newly developed Polo R WRC for the FIA World Championship. Described by VW Head of Development as "the hottest Polo ever," it will begin its round-the-world tour from 2013 at various WRC races. At its heart lies a 1.6-liter TSI engine with 300hp, which enables the concept to accelerate from 0-62mph in 4.1 seconds. From motor racing we move to the street with the VW Polo R WRC Street concept car.
