Street Race In 1,300-HP VW Golf Doesn't End Well

Crash / Comments

For the other guy.

We've seen some amazing things done with the simple Volkswagen Golf. Although this car doesn't begin with much, it's not that difficult to swap out the engine and create something that can embarrass supercars. This particular Golf is very special, because it has a 5.0-liter V10 from a C6-generation Audi RS6 with two turbochargers tossed in for good measure. The result is 1,300 horsepower and a 0-60 mph time of 2.5 seconds. Clearly this Golf could demolish most cars in a drag race, but unfortunately the owner decided to test it on the street.

This race takes place in Kosovo, and the Golf's opponent is a V10-swapped BMW 3 Series. The BMW V10 likely came from an E60-generation M5, but it proves no match for the Golf. Especially since it spins out before the race is over.

There is also a clip from a spectator view, so you can hear the fury of these two V10 engines duking it out. You can also get another angle of that awful crash.
