2018 Polo R WRX is a 562bhp monster

2018 Polo R WRX is a 562bhp monster

If you remember the W12 Golf, the 2018 Volkswagen Polo R is probably the most powerful Volkswagen ever built if not the most extreme. Purpose built for the World Rally-Cross Championship, the Polo R WRX pumps out 562bhp of power.

Built to defend its WRX title, the new Polo R is an improved version of its 2017 model. It gets a wider bumper with large air dams to provide extra cooling and also better aerodynamics. The twin-layer rear spoiler is a remnant of the 2017 WRC car and should provide multiple tuning options for down-force depending upon different tracks and needs.

The 2.0-litre inline-four cylinder engine has been heavily turbocharged to pump out all this horsepower which is sent to all-four wheels. The custom suspension with a full roll-cage and all FIA-prescribed safety gear makes the Polo R a perfect track tool. And also renders it not legal for road driving. If you think you would like something like this to be built for yourself in India, well, you certainly can get it done. Because Volkswagen Motorsport does build special commissions for racers as well as connoisseurs.
