Video: Big Turbo Volkswagen Jetta Takes On Pikes Peak

Our Fifth Generation Golf and Jetta forum has been home to a build thread for the last few months that is a bit atypical to say the least.  User VWR79 and Canadian Performance shop Shift Autosport have taken a perfectly good Volkswagen Jetta show car, and repurposed it with the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb in mind.  Now that the event is passed, the team has posted an onboard video from their run up the mountain.

Finishing 11th in a class filled with Drivers like Ken Gushi and Jeff Zwart piloting factory-backed Scions and purpose built Porsches, we think the Jetta did quite well while leaving room for improvement.  Check out the full build thread in our forums right here.
