Video: 1100hp Boba VW Golf runs world record quarter mile

Ah, the age-old question. What’s quicker, a Volkswagen Golf or 1300hp Nissan GT-R? The answer seems obvious doesn’t it? Well, what if the Golf was labelled as the quickest Golf in the world?

Boba Motoring VW Golf vs GT-R

Here we see a Volkswagen Golf Mk1, known as 16vampir, which is complete with a custom all-wheel drive system, sequential transmission, and a 2.0-litre engine with a mega turbo running mega boost pressure.

The engine produces around 820kW (1100hp) and 1000Nm. It’s built by Boba Motoring and it can propel the Golf from 0-100km/h in 1.9 seconds, and on to a quarter mile in just 8.29 seconds at 281.8km/h. According to Boba Motoring, this is the new world record for a Golf.
