Volkswagen Golf R Takes On Everybody

Drag Race

The people’s car sets out to humiliate anyone that challenges it.

A video we posted recently of a Mk VI VW Golf R in a drag race against a Ferrari 458 Speciale caused quite a stir. Its popularity was obviously due to the fact the VW won, although not without the help of some seriously extensive tuning. So now the little Golf is back, taking to the Dragtimes strip against a series of new supercar challengers. There’s a BMW M6, a Lamborghini Gallardo LMP560, and a Mercedes-Benz CLS63 AMG.

We’re guessing that this is not the last we’ve heard from the HGP Golf.
