1,000-HP Golf MkI Vs. 900-HP Golf MkII

Quarter Mile

We're sure some sort of VW Golf record was broken during the race.

Packing a 2.0-liter 16-valve turbo dialed up to over 1,000 horsepower, this first-generation VW Golf courtesy of the legendary Boba Motoring is one of the most potent in existence. It’s competition for this super hot-hatch drag race is an equally extensively modified Golf, a MKII model powered by a VR6 turbo rated at over 900 horses. The lightning fast runs produce quarter-mile times in the high eights/low nines at speeds of 150-175 mph, while the action can be enjoyed from both in and outside the cars.

0-62 mph is clocked at around 2.2 seconds, 0-124 mph in just over 5 secs, and it takes just 8.59 secs to reach 174 mph.
