Old Golf Packs 736 Horsepower

Tuning

Who needs a supercar when you can tune an old VW to produce 736 horsepower?

For anyone who’s a fan of the standard Volkswagen Golf and its hot hatch GTI counterpart, get ready for something absolutely bonkers. When a stock GTI simply isn’t powerful enough, many owners turn to aftermarket tuners for help. But the owner of this MkI Golf simply wouldn’t settle for the ordinary. So he fitted a turbocharger and retuned the ECU on the car’s 2.0-liter 16-valve engine to churn out a total of 736 horsepower. Just ponder that figure a moment.

That's more power than a Pagani Huayra, Ferrari F12 or Lamborghini Aventador, but in a compact size roughly similar to a modern Polo, and all of it channeled to the front wheels. Like we said, bonkers.
