GTI meets “Monte”: New rally Polo makes guest appearance in Monaco

28.01.2018: Flying visit for the Polo GTI R5: The new rally car for customer sports was on display during the driving event for the new Volkswagen up! GTI

Flying visit for the Polo GTI R5: The new rally car for customer sports was on display during the driving event for the new Volkswagen up! GTI* in Monte Carlo (MC).




 The Polo GTI R5 was exhibited in a particularly prominent location in the Mediterranean principality: in the world famous “Rascasse” corner of the Grand Prix circuit.



The Rally Monte Carlo (26–28 January) was also held this weekend, making it the perfect opportunity for the new racer to strut its stuff in front of an expert audience.



 The Polo GTI R5 itself could well go in search of world championship points for the first time at the iconic “Monte” in January 2019.




* up! GTI 1.0 TSI, 85 kW / fuel consumption in l/100 km (WLTP): combined 5.7–5.6; CO2 emissions in g/km: 129–127 (combined). Fuel consumption in l/100 km (NEFZ): urban 6.0/extra-urban 4.1/combined 4.8; CO2 emissions in g/km: 110 (combined), efficiency class: C.
