A Mad Car Fanatics built a VW Golf that can Wipe Out a Bugatti Veyron

Probably many of you will challenge an old VW Golf to a race, without thinking much about it. But, maybe you should think twice, because it can be much more faster and powerful than it looks like.  There are a lot of Golf’s like this one, which are wolfs in sheep’s clothing. And for this one, we could say: a dinosaur in sheep’s clothing.

If Golf R was manufactured in 80’s, then it would have looked like this VW Golf MK2. This second-generation model was tuned in Germany by Boba Motoring. They decided to replace the stock engine of the humble hatchback with a 2.0l 4 cylinder, 16 valves turbocharged engine taken from GOLF GTI MK3. And this was only the beginning of one great and interesting project.

After uncounted modifications, the guys from Boba Motoring managed to built a car that can wipe out even a Bugatti Veyron. The result: 806 pound-feet of torque and 1,233 horsepower. You will ask probably: What kind of modifications they did to achieve this figures ?

Let’s start with the upgraded cams, a gigantic turbo, re-mapped ECU, bigger injectors as well as strengthen connecting rods, pistons and valves to handle the extra grunt. Well, have anyone ever tried to tune a 2.0l engine to a 4 digits figures?

All this power is channeled to all 4 wheels and transmitted through a 6-speed manual. The figures show 8.6 seconds for 1/4 mile at 174 mph. The weight of this beast is 2,600 pounds. A jaw-dropping performance figures, you’ll agree. But the best thing about this Golf is that it looks like a tired old stock VW Golf.

From outside, there is no air diffuser underneath the rear bumper, no air vents and no spoilers. And inside, the same story – nothing unusual except for the additional switches and a speedometer that goes up to 186 miles per hour (300 km/h).
