Noticeable difference in sound between the VW and Skoda.

My ears prefer the VW

Isn't the Skoda a 2L?
Should be good to have the Polo in the mix. Love that antilag sound.

Skoda S2000 is NA 2.0L.

Not far off the WRC cars for power ~265bhp vs 300bhp but only half the torque 245Nm vs ~600Nm

In some of those shots it almost looks like the car is turning in the air.
