What would a rally-ready supercar look like?

Motorsport is all about speed, but that doesn't mean it's the preserve of supercars. Where else could a Toyota Yaris possibly dominate? The answer is, of course, rally.

Volkswagen Polo GTI R5 rally car revealed

Volkswagen has followed the Golf GTI TCR launch with another – arguably more exciting – motorsport reveal, in the form of the rally-ready Polo GTI R5. The R5 continues the line of Polo-based rally cars from Volkswagen, a line which has seen some serious success in recent seasons. Although there won't be a factory-backed Volkswagen team competing in the World Rally Championship this year, the new Polo ensures the company a presence in the burgeoning FIA R5 class.
