Volkswagen MK1 Golf

I can pretty much guarantee that the engineers at Volkswagen never thought of putting a 736 hp engine under the bonnet of the original Golf MK1. In 1974 the little MK1 cranked out a mere 59 hp from its inline-4, however the one you’re about to see makes more than 12-times that. As you can see, the exterior sheet metal remains stock, however that’s where it ends. Power is put down through the front wheels by way of a six-speed manual transmission, while a massive Garrett turbo running 50 psi of boost helps the little 2-liter crank out big power. The insanity starts after the jump.
