  • Turbocharged 1.8 liter 16V MK2 Golf with over 900 horsepower goes 9.08@163 in the 1/4 mile - World's fastest Golf?

    This is just an absolutely absurd Volkswagen Golf and we love it. The car in the video below is a MK2 Golf that has been retrofitted with 4Motion all wheel drive. The car runs a 1.8 lite 16 valve motor on E85 fuel with a Garrett GTX4202R turbo for about 900 horsepower. Combine that with a 2500 pound curb weight and you get a mean VW Golf. The ECU was tuned by Boba Motoring in Germany and they claim this is the fastest Golf in the world.

    Since this record it has gone 8.89@165 miles per hour. Absolutely absurd and with that trap it likely has more in it as well. Check out the video below.

      It's very hard to source and fit syncro trans, rear drive shaft and rear diff in a MK-II. Great job.
