Beautiful car, it must be an incredible bests to drive.

My mates RX7 has a huge turbo on it with the same filter set up. Just a
foam filter bolted to the inlet of the compressor! and a length of
ducting running from under the car to the filter. He drove me back from
the pub saturday night and when the boost kicks in its like hitting
warp factor 5, everything becomes a blur! 400bhp feels so good

Just look at those wheels.. I am IN LOVE. Wow.. look at it from behind.. is that not a behind that says "I mean business" or what eh !

Reminds me very much of a rallyx car. Huge turbo and a space frame chassis.

I'm counting 5 cylinders in there - guessing it's their tried and trusted Audi quattro 5 cylinder turbo engine in there.

Looks fabulous !

But you do have to ask why?
Why not?! If that does have 900bhp, its size and weight would make it one hugely fast little car. I have always wanted to blow away a super car with a Q car. This or the beige Mk3 Escort which had a 4x4 Cosworth conversion and loads of bhp's which was posted before would be ideal!

Dahlback so some truly mental conversions, anyone see their 600bhp+ MKIV?
I thought that had around 900bhp as well? it's got the same 5 cyl engine in it as this polo has.

Oh and I would imagine the figures of 900bhp in the polo to be correct as they do a 550bhp conversion for

the 1.8T engine the only stipulation it must be 4wd

Nice one Henry! I was after some extra confirmation of this one! I recognised the layout!
