Volkswagen Polo GTI R5 rally car revealed — Auto Car
Volkswagen has followed the Golf GTI TCR launch with another – arguably more exciting – motorsport reveal, in the form of the rally-ready Polo GTI R5.
The R5 continues the line of Polo-based rally cars from Volkswagen, a line which has seen some serious success in recent seasons. Although there won’t be a factory-backed Volkswagen team competing in the World Rally Championship this year, the new Polo ensures the company a presence in the burgeoning FIA R5 class.
Like its production counterpart, the R5 is powered by a turbocharged four-cylinder engine. Where the road car produces 147kW and 320Nm from its 2.0-litre displacement, however, the racer makes 200kW and 400Nm from just 1.6-litres. It’s put to all four wheels through a five-speed sequential gearbox, with close-stacked ratios for lightning-fast acceleration on essentially any surface.
