Most drivers tend to love the incredibly expensive, insanely powerful, sleekly designed supercars, but what if we told you that a VW Golf could outrun them? If you’ve already laughed at the mere thought of that happening, we have a video that you need to watch. YouTuber Gumbal took a standard Golf and switched out the engine to create the ultimate VW Golf drag car.
The VW Golf drag car had its standard four-cylinder engine switched out for a 2.9-liter turbocharged VR6 that pumps out a whopping 600 hp. All that power is sent directly through the front wheels.
In the video, the VW Golf takes on a Mercedes-Benz ML63 AMG. In the first quarter-mile drag race, the Golf posts a time of 12.3 seconds compared to theML63 AMG’s 13.63 seconds.
Throughout the four minute video, the Golf outruns all of its competitors, including an Audi R8 with a massive V10 engine under its hood.
Toward the end of the video, the VW Golf drag car takes on a Dodge Challenger SRT, a more affordable model for most drivers. The old Golf easily outpaces the muscle car without breaking a sweat.
