VW aims for WRC again with VW Polo R

VW for new rally fans doesn’t seem to set off many bells. Today marks a change to that as they unveil the 2013 Polo R which they’re aiming to get into the WRC circuit. The engine is set to crank out 300HP from a 1.6l turbo charged engine in all wheel drive dressings. Given the ties to Audi and many other companies it isn’t that much of a shocker though.

The company has leaked a few concept images to the public with the perk of a giant youtube clip as well. When WRC lost Subaru and Mitsubishi the event felt like it was losing steam, now, it has a new lease on life with many companies from the past returning to power it up.

Hopefully Subaru decides to get back into the game, although the 2012 leaves much to be desired so maybe after the next refresh. A full roster of the worlds best would be great to see.

Rare is it we get to see dedicated rally racers taking to the digital realm, sure they sim their own stuff on the side but it’s always a treat to actually see it. Codemasters broke out some DiRT 2 footage of Ken Block having a ball on a machine I think many of us wish we could try one day.
