The big blue bottle in the engine bay looks lovely doesn’t it? But wait a minute, where’s the engine? Perhaps taking inspiration from Renault’s Clio V6 with a V6 engine mounted at the rear, or even our local homegrown Kancil with a VR4 engine at the rear, this Volkswagen Polo Mk3 has had it’s engineering tweaked extensively by Dubsport. The result is a 1.8 Turbo Audi engine at the rear, turning it into a mid-engined, rear wheel drive car that puts out 325 horsepower. Bear in mind this pocket rocket only weighs about 875kg.
Zero to hundred km/h is done in under 4 seconds, plus over there in the UK the car is actually street legal! Of course, there is also that nitrous injection system with the bright blue nitrous tank mounted in the front engine bay, however horsepower ratings with NOS pumped into the engine have not been tested, but a rough estimate puts the figure at over 400 horses.
Of course, to separate the driver from the big engine at the rear (relatively anyway, the original Polo Mk3 engine was a 1 litre), there is a custom firewall. The driver sits in alloy racing seats with four point racing harnesses. Additional protection is provided by a custom built race spec rollcage.
The starting bid for the car on eBay UK goes for Â£10,000.
