The Volkswagen Polo R WRC is tiny hotness

Volkswagen is entering the world of rally in 2013 with this Volkswagen Polo R WRC. Gotta love the widebody.

Details on drivers and cars aren't out yet, but Volkswagen will reportedly start racing by the end of the year with a full 12 months of work before going for a title in 2013. They'll also spend as much on this series as it did on their successful Dakar campaign, meaning they're going to withdraw from that series as an official factory team (though still support other teams).

If it's going to handle the competition, it'll have to be an AWD monster gobs of horsepower and astronomical torque produced by a pocket-sized engine. Let it be so.
