We’ve recently shared quite a few stories involving several heavily modified old Volkswagen Golfs. But this one tops them all.
The second-generation hatchback in question is the work of Boba Motoring, and some of you many remember the car from previous videos.
Back then, this Volkswagen Golf Mk2 had 1,233 horses and 1,094Nm (807lb-ft) of torque produced by a turbocharged 2.0-liter engine. With the help of all-wheel drive, it needed just 2.53sec for the 0-100km/h (0-62mph) sprint, while the quarter mile was completed in just 8.69 seconds, at 273km/h (170mph).
Since 2016, the car has been upgraded furthermore, having been fitter with a dual-clutch DSG transmission that is supposedly stock (!), along with other parts. The tuner claims their Golf DSG is the fastest of its kind in the world, releasing some very insane numbers: 0-100km/h (0-62mph) in just 2.1 seconds and 0-200km/h (0-124mph) in 5.4 seconds!
Moreover, the 1,220kg (2,690lbs) mega hatch can allegedly reach speeds in excess of 340km/h (211mph), and has recently run the 1/4 mile in 8.76 seconds, at 267.9km/h (166.47mph).
Comparing it to a modern hypercar, this old Volkswagen Golf is faster than the Bugatti Chiron, which is estimated to accelerate to 100km/h (62mph) from a standstill in less than 2.5 seconds. And since we mentioned Bugatti, we can’t help but wonder if the DSG was somehow sourced by a crashed Veyron instead of the VW parts bin, as handling that kind of power in stock form seems quite a stretch.
In order to highlight their extreme creation, Boba Motoring has released yet another video, which shows it in action at the drag strip from several angles. So, without further ado, get ready to witness the craziest Golf you have seen for a long, long time.
