VW Polo R Based On WRC Car Coming?

Is there any chance for a road-going Polo R variant hitting the roads soon? With Polo R WRC due to enter in 2013, we just can’t rule out the possibilities of a road-going variant. The recent news on a Polo R WRC heading for a rally debut in 2013 is what made the suspicion stronger. However, VW is still wavering when it comes to Polo R.


While the rally racer features a 1.6-liter TSI engine with 300 PS (221 kW / 296 hp) and an all-wheel drive system, the road going variant is expected to come up with a 1.4 TSI tuned to above the 200 PS (147 kW / 197 bhp) mark and may not have an all-wheel drive system at all. It seems to resemble Scirocco R, which has a front-drive model. The current Polo GTI comes with a 1.4 TSI with 180 PS (132 kW / 178 hp) 249 Nm (184 lb-ft) of torque.

But, how long will it take for the street-legal variant to make it to the market? Share what you feel about that.
