You heard them when they said, ’you don’t just buy a hot hatch and keep it stock’. In the past we have brought you some of the most interesting modified iterations of cars that will force you to stop and look twice. In the same line what we recently came across was this modified Volkswagen Polo. While most of the changes are cosmetic, we will give you a complete rundown of the car.
Christened as the ‘Green Volk’, this modified VW Polo features a custom wrap job. The base colour is green, and the front left side of the vehicle is black, with a mosaic-style pattern. In addition to this, a few of other changes include a new front grille with an ‘R’ badge on it. The VW logo is completely blacked out, and the car gets chrome delete on the exterior. The headlamps now have a twin projector setup on both sides, surrounded by square-ish LED DRLs. The bottom side of the headlamps features an LED strip for turn indicators, over-lined in red. The bumper is stock but gets a new front splitter, which looks extremely sporty, and the roof and B-pillars have been blacked-out.
At the sides, that sits on a set of multispoke alloy wheels, shod with low-profile rubber. The vehicle seems lowered by a few inches, which gives it an aggressive stance. The ORVMs get an additional, smaller convex mirror, and is blacked out as well. There’s a splitter on the side as well, and the door handles are all body-coloured here. At the rear, we see a faux diffuser treatment on the rear bumper, finished in piano black. A black roof-mounted spoiler has also been added, along with a new black and green VW logo on the tailgate. The taillights feature custom LED elements, which look extremely pretty.
This particular model is a 2016 Volkswagen Polo 1.2 MPI, that is powered by a 1,199cc, naturally aspirated, inline-4 petrol engine. The peak power is rated at 74 HP and the maximum torque at 110 Nm. There is only one transmission options available here – a 5-speed manual gearbox.
