    There is lot of teams/drivers interested in buying Polo. But manufacturer will be choosing very precisely who will receive first cars...

    Yeah I got that... I was wondering how it could be wider stock than an R5 is allowed to be (it would make a useless base for the car in that case). It must be with mirrors.

    My second thought was that those mirrors were gonna be taken off quickly but I forgot that they obviously change not only the mirrors but also the location of them on most rally cars so it was a moot point regardless.

    Pluto i would like to ask you what do you think about this project.I mean do you believe that a car without official team to the rallies(either erc or wrc) can beat cars running under official teams?The two best cars ford and skoda are running with full support.See what happen to peugeot,citroen,hyundai.Why this venture should have different fate?

    i belive there will be (as pluto said) very few, very precisley choosen teams such as BRR to run the cars....and such Teams can for sure beat cars run directly from factory!

    Polo looking very similar to the Fabia using the same test camouflage and has the same central exhaust:

    While I am sure that Polo takes something from Fabia (just like the WRC took a lot from the S2000) it's not the things visible from outside. Polo is larger and has much longer wheelbase. Moreover it's built on different platform and therefore it's not just about placing the existing things into the new body and develop them further.
