Volkswagen Polo R WRC Street Car Previewed

Volkswagen is heading to the annual GTI Meeting at Wörthersee this year with a street concept version of its Polo R WRC race car.The Polo R WRC Street will be powered by a 2.0-liter TSI four-cylinder engine with 220 hp, 40 more than the street 180 hp GTI.

The German automaker will be heading to Wörthersee with a total of five vehicles, including the WRC Race Street, Golf GTI Cabriolet, Polo R-WRC race car, GTI Black Dynamic, and Golf GTI ‘White Concept’.

The most exciting of course is the WRC Street, the first time Volkswagen is debuting the model which is set to be launched in late 2013. On the outside, the WRC Street sports a rear spoiler, diffuser, sport-tuned suspension, and an inscription with R-WRC logos. Of course it has its requisite graphics but overall the WRC Street looks like a fun package.

The WRC Polo race car will also be present at the annual meet, and the two GTI concepts contrast one another by exterior shade – black and white.
