    Anyone know if/when a Mk8 Fiesta R5 is coming ?

    Seems strange when the WRC Mk8 car has already been out nearly two years...

    `How competitive will the Polo be out of the box in Spain?
    Will it be on level with the Fabia?

    Will be surprised if there are no reliability issues, but lets see.

    Maybe there will be some niggles but it should be fast and reliable out of the box. The Fabia was pretty good from the start and VW had the added advantage of Skoda's R5 knowledge as a base to work from.

    Summer 2019, but I have not read any official statment from M Sport.

    Any idea if there will be big change on aero packed? engine? Or will it just be a simple facelift ?

    New car. M-Sport has no worry to launch R5, need be profitable and fast from beggining.

    e-Car projet seems to be secret too.

    Aero can't be much different, as in R5 it's very limited. Engine will be totally different, as based on different standard engine. Will be more powerful. Other main components similar - Life Racing electronics, Sadev transmission, Reiger dampers... Car will be lighter than current model. Original plan was to release car in March 2019, for the moment it's delayed, maybe until autumn 2019.
