Volkswagen Polo R WRC Street by B&B Automobiltechnik

Siegen-based tuninghouse B&B Automobiltechnik has detailed its new program to suit the Volkswagen Polo R WRC Street, endowing it with more power than the actual Polo R WRC car.

Already developing 162 kW (217 hp) and 349 Nm of torque from its 2.0 TSI in factory guise, B&B offers several stages of performance upgrades culminating in the €7,950 Stage Three option, which entails remapped ECU software, enlarged intercooler, uprated oil cooler, a high-pressure fuel pump, modified air intake and complete exhaust system with metal catalytic converter. Those changes see output lifted to 270 kW (362 hp) and 510 Nm torque, meaning the 0-100 km/h time tumbles from from 6.4 to 5.2 seconds, with 200 km/h appearing in 17.1 seconds (series 24.2s) and top speed now 270 km/h rather than 243 km/h.

Other components on offer include sport springs or an adjustable coilover kit, thicker anti-roll bars, a big brake upgrade with four or six-piston calipers, and those lightweight multi-spoke alloy wheels, which measure 8 x 18-inches and come wrapped in 225/35 rubber.
