8-Second FWD Volkswagen

January 6th, 2018

This is not a title that I would have anticipated writing. Feel the weight of those few words; a front-wheel drive Volkswagen capable of chewing through the quarter-mile in 8.5-seconds at 175 mph. It’s mind numbing.
Billed as the quickest FWD VW in the world, this European import is making tons of horsepower with a 2.5-liter (5-cylinder) engine and a Precision 7275 turbocharger.
This car blew the doors off the competition (and himself) on the way to making a huge mess on the track. It’s not often that you see a Volkswagen gap a Mustang while crushing its own world record and slinging a passenger door in the process.
There are numerous imports races on this clip and some interesting import vs. domestic action. Take a look for yourself.
