European Hill-Climb Champion season, Polish racer Paul Dytko and his team have taken it upon themselves to build their own Volkswagen Polo rally car. Watch this video that shows Ken Block style, gymkhana style drifting of Dytko in the dirt, mud, rain tearing it up! Rumor has it, he wants to run the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb.
Not to be confused with Volkswagen Motorsport’s Polo R WRC, Dytko’s machine has been custom built for the mountain rallies throughout Europe. It features a 405 PS (298 kW / 400 bhp) turbo engine and the AWD Polo can hit 100 km/h in around four seconds.
Still the cost of such an endeavor is huge and team Dytko continues their search for sponsors so they can already upgrade the Polo to a full steel tube chassis.
Team Dytko’s dream is to one day race at Pikes Peak.
