Limited-run vehicles always grab the attention of customers and even more so when one of these models are given a comprehensive aftermarket upgrade.
Well, it made it even more special, that’s what!
This the German pocket rocket already has enough stylish and mechanical digs to make consumers weep, but B&B opted to make it extra special, adding a host of upgrades to improve the car’s handling requirements. As such, the Polo R WRC Street now has a coilover kit, sports springs, stabilizers a high-performance braking system with four- or six-piston calipers and a new set of 18-inch alloy wheels wrapped in 225/35R18 tires.
But the real treat of this program is the comprehensive performance upgrade, highlighted by a Stage 3 kit that includes the installation of a bespoke high-pressure fuel pump and a sports exhaust system to go with a modified air suction system, a new high-performance intercooler and a different oil-cooling system. All told, B&B was able to bump up the output of the Polo R WRC Street from the standard 217 horsepower and 258 pound-feet torque output all the way up to a tidy 362 horsepower and 376 pound-feet of torque.
With those changes, this German spitfire is now capable of hitting 62 mph in just 5.2 seconds, a full 1.2 seconds faster than the ’standard’ model, to go with a top speed of 168 mph, up from 151 mph.
