Video: Polo Envy – The Veyron SS Gets Outclassed by an Old VW

The Bugatti Veyron SS puts out an incredible 1,184hp. This particular Volkswagen Polo puts out an astonishing 1,200hp.

The second generation Volkswagen Polo ran from 1981-1990 (until 1994 if you count the facelift) and isn't necessarily a car that would keep your attention for more than a few seconds. This AME R31 Turbo Polo, however, will leave you shell-shocked as it blasts off the line. This video depicts probably the most powerful Polo in the world, showing it run the quarter-mile in an incredibly swift 8.8 seconds. The Bugatti Veyron SS can only run the same distance in 9.7 seconds.

It runs on a turbocharged VR6 24-valve 3.1-liter engine. Its light weight of only 970lbs also helps it achieve a tremendous jump off the line. The pocket-rocket Polo runs on an all-wheel-drive configuration. The Volkswagen Polo seen here ran at an airfield earlier this year and hit a top speed of 166.5mph. It was built by AME Racing.
