920 hp Volkswagen Golf lunacy [video]

Having witnessed this insane Mk2 Volkswagen Golf last year, it’s great to see that it’s now even quicker. The innocent looking 1989 model, constructed by the guys at Boba Motoring, uses an engine based around a 1.8 L 1Z diesel block, with a billet steel crankshaft, Pauter steel connecting rods, forged pistons and a KR 16-valve cylinder head. Fed by a Garrett GTX4202R turbocharger, this street-sleeping hatchback develops 686 kW (920 hp) running on E85 fuel, which is transmitted to the tarmac via a 4MOTION four-wheel drive system. Those figures result in a 0-100 km/h (62 mph) time of just 2.3 seconds, with 200 km/h appearing in 6.0 s and, as you’re about to see – the quarter mile in a mere 9.08 s. Enjoy.
