From the article:

"The all-wheel-drive Polo R WRC will be powered by a turbocharged 1.6-liter engine, which Volkswagen expects will produce around 300 horsepower. Volkswagen Motorsport has high hopes for its WRC Polo, and hopefully the team can draw on the success that VW experienced with rallying in the 1980s. In 1986, a Volkswagen GTI was the winning car in the newly formed Group A. Look for the Volkwagen Polo R WRC to try and capture some of that former glory starting with the 2013 WRC season."

I do hope that they would bring out Polo R / Audi S1 with a similar 1.6l turbo, tuned to something above 200hp.

VW have the Polo R penned in for early next year:thumbsup:

My guess would be the 1.4TSI engine from the Polo GTI, dialled up to 200+bhp and with DSG and maybe haldex as the Audi S1 has already been previewed in this format:cool:

Since you mentioned S1, Autoblog has an update on that. And if their numbers are in the ballpark, the engine might be quite different to the Polo R.
