Video: Volkswagen Polo WRC car vs gold-medalist downhill skier

Volkswagen has released a new promotional clip pitting its mad Polo R WRC car against downhill skiing gold medalist Aksel Lund Svindal.

Filmed on a stunning strip of Norwegian tarmac stretching over 29km, Volkswagen’s Andreas Mikkelsen piloted the Polo R WRC beast through 27 hairpins in dramatic style.

With just a few stunts and surprises snuck in, we won’t tell you how it ends. Check it out below.
