Here is a sketch of the new VW Polo GTI R5 which is going to be a customer rally car based on the new Polo GTI. Expect to see this rally car with its 270 hp, 4 cylinder turbo charged engine, during the second half of 2018 WRC and other rally championships.

“With the Polo GTI R5 we are hoping to transfer our expertise from four WRC titles to customer racing successfully, and offer a first-class racing machine for countless rally championships from national series to the WRC”. “Before the first race outing next year, we will subject the Polo GTI R5 to rigorous testing to make sure it is prepared for the extremely varied track conditions around the world.”

Said Volkswagen Motorsport Director Sven Smeets.
