Volkswagen Polo Sprint

A simple(ish) but effective formula, this: take one '83 Polo breadvan. Rip out the engine. Rip out the back seats. Where the back seats were, install a 1.9 litre engine from a Transporter. Strap on a G-Lader supercharger. Grin broadly.

It was a bit more complicated than that, obviously, and never made it into any kind of official production, even for motorsport. Still, with 156bhp and around 65% of the weight over the rear wheels, it was apparently a bit of a handful...
