Watching the diminutive VW being tested in Finland in <a href=&quot;http://www.autoblog.com/2011/05/05/volkswagen-to-contest-wrc-with-polo-r-in-2013/">preparation for next year's</a> World Rally Championship makes us think "Wow, that's awesome!" and "Who's got the remote?"<br /><br />The rawer, wider, lighter Polo is powered by a <strike>Pratt &amp; Whitney</strike> 300-horsepower, 1.6-liter STI engine, and sounds it. It might take some time for it to start winning, but there's proof in the video below that it will fly from the very first rally.<p><a href=&quot;http://www.autoblog.com/2012/06/30/volkswagen-polo-r-wrc-takes-to-the-air-during-tests/" rel="bookmark">Continue reading <em>Volkswagen Polo R WRC takes to the air during tests</em></a></p><p style="padding:5px;background:#ddd;border:1px solid #ccc;clear:both;"><a href=&quot;http://www.autoblog.com/2012/06/30/volkswagen-polo-r-wrc-takes-to-the-air-during-tests/">Volkswagen Polo R WRC takes to the air during tests</a> originally appeared on <a href=&quot;http://www.autoblog.com">Autoblog</a> on Sat, 30 Jun 2012 20:01:00 EST.
