India’s first Marlboro wrapped custom Volkswagen Polo GT

Volkswagen Polo is a premium hatchback that has been on sale in the Indian market for over a decade. Over the years, Volkswagen has made minor cosmetic changes and also introduced powerful versions of the hatchback. They had launched the Polo GT and even more powerful 3-door hot hatchback GTi in the market. Even after so many years, the basic design of the Polo has not changed but, things will soon change when Volkswagen brings the next-gen Polo to India later this year. We have seen several examples of modified Polo and Polo GT in India and here we have a video of a Polo GT from Kerala, which is probably India’s first to get a Marlboro wrap on it.

The video has been uploaded by The Last Voyager on his youtube channel. The video starts by showing all the upgrades that are done to the car on the outside and then moves in. The main attraction of this particular Polo GT is the wrap. Internationally we have seen Marlboro wraps on several cars but, it is a rare right here in India. The basic colour of the car was red. The owner got a white colour Marlboro theme wrap on the red Polo GT.

Before wrapping the car, the stock front bumper on the Polo GT was replaced with R Line bumper. It is a bit different from the stock version and looks a lot more sportier. The are of the same shape but, it now gets dual projector headlamps with LED DRLs and sweeping LED turn indicators. A set of LED DRLs are also installed on the bumper. The bumper gets wide air intakes which adds to the sporty look of the car.

Moving to the side, the car sits a bit lower than the standard Polo GT. That is because, it now gets lowering springs from Eibach. The lower springs along with all black multi-spoke alloy wheels with low profile tyres have totally changed the stance of the car. The red and white dual tone theme is seen all over the car with Marlboro branding on it. The roof has been completely blacked out as well.

Moving towards the rear, the bumper has been replaced with latest version Polo TSI and the standard tail lamps have been replaced with aftermarket LED units. A black spoiler is also seen on the roof of it. R Line badges are also installed on the fender and all the chrome elements have been completely blacked out.

Other than these cosmetic upgrades, this Polo GT gets a stage 2 remap from Code6 along with BMC filter and a custom made carbon tip twin exhaust system from Code6. The exhaust has an aggressive sporty note which goes well with the overall look of the car. The car now generates around 135-140 Bhp. On the inside, the interiors are all blacked out including the roof.

The seats get leather upholstery with red stitching on it. It also has an aftermarket touchscreen infotainment system installed in it. According to the vlogger, these modifications were done over a period of time and the owner has spent almost Rs 3.5-4 lakh in modifications alone. The Marlboro wrapped Polo GT does looks very unique and the work done on it looks neat too.
