Today Volkswagen held a press conference in a casino at Monte Carlo in order to indroduce to the press the new Polo R WRC that will compete next season, with the first race taking place precisely in Monte Carlo.
The drivers were already known, Sébastien Ogier, Jari-Matti Latvala and Andreas Mikkelsen has the third pilot. But only now VW released information about the technical aspects of the car. It has a 1.6 liter TSI engine producing 315hp and will do 0 to 100km/h (0 to 62mph) in 4.1 seconds, probably in all types of terrain.
From mid January the WRC will start with a new contender, Volskwagen, but will only have Citroen as a real adversary, and even Citroen won't have Loeb to make it easy for them.
