Volkswagen has a real treat for Volkswagen Polo fans. Volkswagen is presenting a study that is based on the new Volkswagen Polo - the 'Worthersee 09' concept car.
Visually, this study offers an initial impression of how a sport version of the new compact might look. It should be noted that it was always part of the successful model series as the Volkswagen Polo GT, Polo G40 or Polo GTI. From a purely technical perspective, the display piece is based on the 1.4-liter MPI version engine with 63 kW/86 PS. Its unique aspects are to be found in the details.
The Volkswagen Polo 'Worthersee 09' stands out with its extroverted 'Flash Red' body colour. In addition, two black rally stripes command attention; they extend over the front end, the roof and back to the rear. The sporty, generously sized alloy wheels are the last detail. The black 18-inchers in 'Budapest' styling are making their appearance with polished spokes; they generously fill out the wheel housings of the lowered chassis of the new bestseller - more than 13,000 orders have been received, even before its market launch. The black versus red contrast can be seen as a defining, excitement generating theme. The radiator grille screen, mirror caps, backdrop of the headlights and insert in the lower bumper known as the 'buckle' all offer a dark contrast. And the Volkswagen Polo Worthersee 09's sport exhaust system pleases with its optimised sound.
Premium black also characterizes the Volkswagen Polo Worthersee 09's interior. It takes a path from the roofliner over the air vents - each with a high-gloss finish - the steering wheel accents and radio panel down to the very distinctive front seats. They are made of very high-end materials. Black nappa leather trims the outer surfaces and the centre seat panels where they are offset by horizontal black stripes in the microfibre 'San Remo'. The seat's lateral supports have an arc-shaped striped design which viewed from outside to inside - is composed of nappa leather, flash-red nappa leather piping, the white leather 'Berry White- and black leather. The aluminium tread plates are also a custom feature; they bear the signature 'Polo Worthersee 09'. Red seams also enhance the Volkswagen Polo Worthersee 09's leatherwork on the parking brake handle, gearshift grip, steering wheel and door trim.Published 21 May 2009
