My Buddies Kris and Jason at VW Paradise ran thier first SEVEN second pass in their turbocharged VW sedan last week. 7.99 @ 177mph. More impressive is that the sixty foot time was a full tenth slower than normal (track was not hooking-you can see the soft launch) and they were 6 mph off thier best of 183. No doubt that there is a lot more to be had.
And yes, that is an aircooled flat-four VW motor in there.
So, that begs the question, "how much horsepower does it take to do that?" How about 1025hp...to the wheels!
