The German car maker recently released photos of the production model. The street-ready unit is so unlike the race car version.

The Polo R WRC is listed with a $43,690 price tag in Germany. It includes a set of 18-inch Cagliari alloy-wheels, radio navigation unit, climate control, winter package, rain and light sensor, cruise control, and standard bi-xenon headlights.
