Volkswagen South Africa has announced a limited-run version of its most popular locally-made model, called the Polo Pistorius.

Each Polo Pistorius comes with springy carbon fibre wheels and will be entitled to park in the disabled space, although sometimes it will insist that it doesn’t want to. The car features headlight washers which trigger on demand.

The most unusual element of the new limited edition is a special entry system which requires the driver to fire the remote locking four times before breaking down the door with a bat and then claiming you thought there were thieves inside.

The Polo Pistorius will be offered with a unique finance deal which only locks you in for five years.
