Volkswagen close to finalising 2017 World Rally Car design

Volkswagen will finalise the specification of its Polo R for the World Rally Championship’s 2017 rules revamp by the end of this month.

The German firm has just concluded its latest round of testing with the new car and technical director Francois-Xavier Demaison said it was now in the final development phase.

“Everything has to be with the FIA for homologation for November 1,” Demaison said.

“After that, we cannot change anything – the only thing that will change is if the FIA is not happy with something.
