WRC Polo R all set to be VW’s 2017 World Rally Championship entry.

Volkswagen has released details and a sketch of its 374bhp WRC Polo R rally car .

The latest Polo R is lighter, wider, and significantly more powerful than the car that came before it – almost 60bhp more powerful, bringing the total from a still-respectable 313bhp to a massive 374bhp.

VW has also been able to add an electronic centre differential, and with the regulations allowing a lower minimum weight, the car has been reduced from 1,200kg to 1,175kg.

All the technology from the new car has been tested separately, but the 2017 season is the first time it will be used in competition
