    The GTI for rallying: With the Polo GTI R5 Volkswagen returns under new auspices in the rally sport. In the second half of 2018, Volkswagen will offer the roughly 270-hp rally version of the Polo professional team and ambitious drivers to compete in championships around the globe, including the FIA ​​World Rally Championship (WRC). A sketch of the car based on the new sixth generation Polo gives a first taste.

    Volkswagen Motorsport Director Sven Smeets proclaimed to the Motoring Press, 'With the Polo GTI R5, we would like to successfully transfer our expertise from four World Rally Championship titles to customer sport and offer a first-class sports equipment for a number of rally championships, from the national series to the World Cup. Until the first race in the coming year, we will be putting the Polo GTI R5 through an intensive test program to cope with the very different track conditions around the world."

    The development of the Polo GTI R5 has been in full swing since the beginning of the year and first test runs are planned later this year. The experience gained from the successful World Rally Championship will be directly incorporated: Volkswagen Motorsport Technical Director François-Xavier will be responsible for the development of the Polo GTI R5, "FX" Demaison, father of record-winning Polo R WRC. Gerard Jan de Jongh also contributes his full expertise as a senior project engineer. Previously, the Dutchman was racing engineer for Sébastien Ogier, who won the drivers title with Volkswagen four times in a row. A much of the GTI R5 Polo is a descendant of the 2017 Polo R WRC which we all know had had it's programme cancelled as a direct consequence of the diesel issue.

    The Polo GTI R5 has like the production model - whose launch is still the end of this year - about a powerful four-cylinder turbocharged engine with gasoline direct injection. This is complemented by four-wheel drive, a sequential five-speed racing gear and a comprehensive safety package as the most important features of the 2012 launched by the Automobile World Federation FIA R5 category. It offers private drivers, teams and importers the opportunity to use cost-effective and powerful rally vehicles in national, regional and international championships.

    For Volkswagen Motorsport, the Polo GTI R5 marks another milestone in the strategic realignment: following the successful launch of the Golf GTI TCR, which has been driving victories and titles in numerous championship titles since 2016, Volkswagen Motorsport is now expanding its customer-sporting activities the rally sport.
