Street sleeper Golf runs 8.89 second quarter [video]

The regulars amongst you will be familiar with the insane ’16Vampir’ Volkswagen Golf Mk2, and its habit of covering the quarter mile at an increasingly-alarming rate. Well, it just got a little faster. Competing at Bitburg earlier this month, the relatively innocent-looking 1989 hatchback recorded a time of just 8.89 seconds at 266 km/h (165 mph), prompting claims of it being the quickest Golf on the planet.

Built by Boba Motoring, the engine uses a 1.8-litre 1Z diesel block, with a billet steel crank, Pauter steel connecting rods, forged pistons and a KR 16V cylinder head. The unit is fed by a Garrett GTX4202R turbocharger, which results in 671 kW (900 hp) on E85 fuel. Enjoy.
