Default Volkswagen Polo R spied

A racy ‘R’ version of the Volkswagen Polo has been confirmed as many times as it has been denied over the past couple of years but our spies think they’ve finally caught their first glimpse of the hot Polo.

Concealed under this standard Polo GTI body is Polo R running gear, including an all-new 1.6-litre TSI engine and the possibility of four-wheel drive. The 1.6-litre TSI unit will produce around 210bhp and is likely to replace the 1.8-litre TSI engine in the VW line-up which is currently one of the oldest and most inefficient engines.

The new engine has been revealed in the Volkswagen Polo R WRC rally entry for 2013 where it produces 300bhp.

In production form, the Polo R should be capable of 0-62mph in around six seconds and a top speed of more than 150mph.

Expect to see the newcomer on sale late in 2012 with a price-tag of around £24,000.
