Here’s a better view of Volkswagen Motorsport’s new rally weapon. Usually camera phones and similar “devices” aren’t really your best friend if you’re trying to present something properly, so forget about those early photos from Facebook, Twitter and such and enjoy these fine images, made by team’s official snappers.
Sebastien Ogier, Jari-Matti Latvala and Andreas Mikkelsen look quite happy with the looks of their new cars and clothes, but soon enough it will be time to stop smiling and start working. Hopefully, they’ll have to work extra hard this year.
“The new Polo R WRC has undergone intense further development, both on the inside and the outside,” said Dr. Heinz-Jakob Neußer, Volkswagen Board Member for Technical Development. “Not only does it look even more dynamic and sporty than it did before, but our engineers have also been working meticulously on technical innovations under the bonnet and have improved many detailed aspects of the package that has been so successful for the past two years. The focus of this further development was on efficiency, reliability and performance. We can hardly wait to see the new Polo R WRC in Monte Carlo and at the other twelve rallies on four continents.”
