This old Opel Kadett can burn rubber like no other, but most importantly, it can humiliate modern supercars in a straight line acceleration.
With an almost stock exterior, bar the giant intercooler visible from beneath the front grille, and a few updates here and there, including the addition of a roll cage in case things go bad, the car was filmed at a drag racing event in Germany.
At this point, you may rightfully ask what is a Kadett E doing at the drag strip? The answer lies in the description of the video, which claims the predecessor of the Astra packs a massive 1,250 horsepower!
Powering it is a heavily tuned 2.0-liter engine equipped with a turbocharger running at 3.1-bar. Channeling the insane output to the wheels is an F28 transmission, built by Getrag and fitted to the Opel Calibra Turbo back in the day.
This heavily modidied Kadett proved its credentials against the clock in a 1/2-mile (0.8 km) run, hitting a top speed of over 312 km/h (194 mph). To put this into perspective, an even more powerful Toyota Supra, with some 1,400 horses, managed to sprint up to 200 mph (322 km/h) over the same distance.
