Twin-engine, 1,600-hp MK3 Golf GTI

It’s Friday! What are your plans for the weekend? Races? Car show? Drag strip? If you’re into the latter, this video produced by 1320video will have you in awe, and scratching your head, and not necessarily in that order.

First, you’ll be confused by two very different burnouts from this same car, then by the location and number of engines. Said mills are turbocharged VR6 narrow-angle VW V6 engines, or in other words, a VR12. Each engine is mated to a sequential transmission that can be operated independently, or jointly. The math and work required to make this happen is mind-boggling.

The video shows the car crushing not only the ¼ mile run in less than a heartbeat over 9 seconds but also crunching some mechanicals.

The build quality and attention to detail are nothing short of fantastic, and the colour!! We absolutely love the car and can’t wait to find an update showing the car breaking the 8-second barrier, and hopefully nothing else.
