The 1000hp VW Golf Mk1

This is a drag race between a VW Golf Mk1 4Motion with a 1000hp 2-litre turbocharged engine and a VW Golf Mk2 4Motion with a 900hp turbocharged VR6 engine.

Pretty fast eh? The Mk1 did the quarter mile in 8.56 seconds which is faster than a Porsche 911 Turbo S.  Incidentally the Mk1 does 0-62mph in 2.2. seconds.
