VW is preparing to release a GTI version of their new Polo in 2006. Of course, the U.S. does not get the Polo. The Polo GTI is slated to get the 1.8T engine that used to be shared across the VW/Audi line. It will be setup to produce about 150 hp. The Polo GTI should be good for 0-60 in less than 8 seconds if it is geared right, and with tuner support for the 1.8T abundant, you could have a monster on your hands for a little cash.
