VBox is accurate to within 0.1 sec compared to the electronic devices used at dragstrips.

...May they managed to build a good chassis?...

Well the truth is this car cannot keep the 350nm and 220 hp on the road, even in third gear. ESP cannot be turned off. Circuit performance clearly won't be nothing to be amazed.

243 kph top speed and 6.4 s to 100 kph not bad for a Polo. A Street (not steet) version of the Polo limited to 2500 units.

But that's not why I added this car. Here is the reason - http://www.ultimatecarpage.com/car/5369/Volkswagen-Polo-R-WRC.html

But look at its performance! 315 kph and 3.9 sec! Is that real? LOL, a racing Polo with only 310 PS is able to be the same fast as Porsche 997 GT3 RS!?
