Video: Polo Hillclimb Assault

Hillclimb racing translates extremely well to the YouTube format, as runs are generally quick, both in duration and in velocity. The cars are extremely focused, including numerous functional enhancements for downforce and power, making all the right noises. Pair these time-attack style builds with a few cameras staged on a race route, and you’re guaranteed to get a few minutes of video gold.

In this particular video, a Polo rockets up a hill in northwestern Luxembourg, 1.4L G60 screaming the entire way.  Sticky rubber tucked underneath wide flares ensures that the Polo keeps every bit of momentum possible, making for a very fast, very entertaining ride.
