Until the early 2000’s, Diesel passenger cars were certainly not common place in Australia. Even today seeing one at the drags is quite a rare sight. Anthony’s Volkswagen Polo features the factory 1.9L TDI diesel engine which in standard form only generates around 100hp.
With some well thought out modifications the Polo is now cranking out 280hp! With a race weight of only just over a tonne this equals to some impressive real world performance.
