Now this is what we call a hovercraft. Check out the Volkswagen rally car taking flight from the practice course.
There should be a production version of the Volkswagen Polo R WRC that's simply called the Polo RC, as in "RC car." Watching the diminutive VW being tested in Finland in preparation for next year's World Rally Championship makes us think "Wow, that's awesome!" and "Who's got the remote?"
The rawer, wider, lighter Polo is powered by a Pratt & Whitney 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.
Yowza! Can you image how much shear fun it would be to drive, oops, I mean fly that car through the woods. I'm sure this will have some of our Checkered Flag Volkswagen fans thinking, "is this real." Well, it is my friends. And while the "street legal" models we offer here at our Virginia Beach Volkswagen store are geared toward staying on the ground, they are still a thrill to drive.
