German tuning company B&B introduced its tuning package for the already extreme road going version of the Polo R WRC. The package is more performance oriented so there's not much to talk about when it comes to styling updates. On the other hand, engine tweaks include a new bespoke high-pressure fuel pump, a modified air suction system, a custom sports exhaust system, high-performance charging air cooler, a new oil cooling system and engine software update. This series of modifications makes the output jump from 217 hp to 362 Hp and 510 Nm (376 lb ft) of torque!

The result is a car that can sprint from 0 too 100km/h (62 mph) in 5.2 seconds, a full 1.2 seconds quicker than the already stock version. B&B's Polo R WRC also sheds 7 seconds off its 0 to 200 km/h time (0 to 124 mph) since it reaches the magic mark in just 17.1 seconds. When it comes to top speed, the tiny Volkswagen is now able to reach 270 km/h (168 mph)!

The performance upgrade kit is available for 7,950 euros ($10,800) and comes with a series of body enhancements like the coilover kit, sports springs, stabilizers and the high-performance braking system that can be ordered with four or six-piston calipers. Finally the car rides on lightweight 18-inch alloy wheels.
