Old skool Golf defies laws of physics

900hp Mk2 Golf

This just about the most awesome DIY drag car we’ve seen. Clearly, being an old skool Volkswagen Golf, it gets a big tick here at AUSmotive HQ. But it’s more that this innocent and humble looking Mk2 is hiding a 16 valve 1.8 litre engine with a monster Garrett GTX4202R turbo bolted on. How does 900hp sound! That’s around 1hp per kilogram.

Throw in a 4 motion all-wheel drive system and you end up with a Veyron-basher; 0-100km/h in 2.7 seconds and, get this, 0-250km/h in just 8.87 seconds.

Take the jump to see this beast in action.
