Volkswagen has just affirmed that the special-edition concept just-revelaled Polo R WRC is going to have a production’s plan for the 2013. The sports version has been unveiled at the Worthersee, the Austrian tuning festival that is becoming progressively popular.  As VW claims the prototype will have limited production and is an anticipation of the additional tuned small-line. Everything is confirmed to be at dealers in the next year simultaneously with the Volkswagen Polo’s gaining the access to the World Rally Championship.

New Volkswagen’s attraction Polo R WRC features an extreme design that involved the addition of a rear diffuser and a top spoiler. The badged R-WRC’s styling has been ended with a not so extreme but improved bodykit, massive alloys wheels and sports suspension.

The compact street-legal sport’s car will be pushed by a 2.0-litre TSI Turbocharged power unit. It has been confirmed that engine boost a 217bhp only to the front wheels, which mean of course a much more power than the hot current GTI 1.4 178bhp, but also a 9bhp more than the Golf GTI and latest hatch popular Clio 200. Although German carmaker probably would not reveal still specs about the transmission of the Polo R WRC, it is believed the existence of a double-clutch paddle box due to the lack of a manual shift lever.
