Forget the Golf Syncro – what we have here might be the VWVortex reader’s ultimate wet dream. As part of the homologation process for the 2013 WRC season, Volkswagen is releasing 2500 road-going versions of its Polo WRC car.
With 217 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque, the Polo WRC can outgun competitors like the Ford Fiesta ST in the all-important online bench-racing wars, but the impressive performance and exclusivity come at a price. European consumers will have to shell out $40,000 to get one of these cars. Even the Golf R seems like a decent deal next to this.
