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.

The model has also been equipped with lightweight wheels, a roll cage, and an assortment of safety equipment.
