Technical specifications

Polo RX Supercar

As powerful as Group B.

The two-litre, four-cylinder engine in the Marklund Polo Supercar is small on displacement, but big on power output – with its turbochargers, it can deliver no less than 600 hp, and puts its power to impressive use on the track with its permanent four-wheel drive. It takes a mere 2.1 seconds to go from 0 to 100 km/h, and it can reach speeds of up to 190 km/h in spite of its short gear ratio.
