Volkswagen's new Polo GTI rally car is here

Track-Only Volkswagen Golf GTI TCR Gets a Facelift

Unveiled in Mallorca, it's set to help the German brand conquer rally stages once again.

The development of the new Polo GTI R5 has incorporated the experience and expertise that went into the development of the old Polo WRC auto, which won four consecutive world titles between 2013 and 2016. That was a massive success, going on to win four consecutive world titles between 2013 and 2016. Now, with the new Polo GTI R5, the company is making a comeback, not as a contender but as a vehicle provider for aspiring drivers, motorsport customer, and even professional teams and to enable them to compete in championships across the globe, including the WRC. Jan de Jongh, project manager, was also involved in developing Ogier's auto.

Technical director François-Xavier Demaison added: "The Polo GTI R5 came through the initial tests without any problems". Gravel and asphalt testing took place in France in mid-November, and will continue in Britain through December. 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.

Introduced earlier today in Spain, the Polo GTI R5 is a turn-key rally vehicle that was created to compete in the R5 class alongside rivals such as the Citroën DS3 R5, Ford Fiesta R5, and Skoda Fabia R5. The model has also been equipped with lightweight wheels, a roll cage, and an assortment of safety equipment.

That's why we can now talk about the 2018 VW Polo GTI R5.

The Polo GTI R5 will be homologated next summer and the first deliveries are scheduled to occur shortly thereafter. It features a 1.6-liter turbocharged, direct-injected, four-cylinder powerplant making 272 PS (268 hp) and 400 Nm (296 lb-ft) of torque sent to all four wheels through a five-speed racing gearbox and permanent all-wheel drive system. In the rally Polo, the GTI family has another spectacular ambassador.
