  2. Jetta/GLI VI
    I have a 2012 Jetta GLI that I want out of. LOT of work done to the car. As of recent there was no compression in cylinder 3. Could just be a lifter. But done spending money on the car. Last time it was dyno’d had 360 to the wheels. upgraded to APR k04 turbo (rebuilt 500 miles ago) Enkei light...

    Yes. As it turns out, if you tune a TT RS (via Abt and then MRC) to make 610 hp and 575 lb-ft of torque, a little over 160 more than the R8 V10 Plus, it can keep up with an R8. This isn’t exactly a straight-up fight, since the drag strip is sopping wet and the R8 is also modified, but...

    Car enthusiasts are an interesting bunch. There are the people that always have to get the newest thing. They change cars faster than some people change underwear (ew). Then there are people who buy a car and hold onto it 'til it's like an old pair of Chuck Taylor shoes; worn in, some frayed...

    Forget the three-liter Lupo, this little Volkswagen is a four-liter version. Except where the first one was a nod to fuel economy, this one is for the pair of 2.0L turbo fours under the front and rear of the tiny car. 1,200 hp, says the description of the video. So what do you drag race this...

    The follow-up to the Cayman GT4 racer is finally here and Porsche has not only made it faster but greener, too. That’s because the 718 Cayman GT4 has body panels made out of natural fiber composites. These are just like the carbon composites that are de rigueur in fast cars, but trade the...

    What happens when an Up! GTI, a Polo GTI, a Golf GTI, and a Golf GTI Clubsport S go head to head? This may seem like a foregone conclusion.  The biggest one, making the most horsepower--the Clubsport S--should always win. But if you have a DSG going up against someone with bad reaction times in...

    This June the Volkswagen I.D. R will attempt to set a record at Pikes Peak in the electric prototype class. The car is designed to show what Volkswagen’s electric vision for the future can achieve and the Pikes Peak Hillclimb is one of the better places to do that since it already has an...

    Now, I've gone on record before saying things about compact SUVs that are less than kind. Comparing them to jellybeans in shape in interchangeability, accusing them of being useless, expensive, and all kinds of other things. But, as always, the crucible of motorsport is the compact SUV's savior...

    This might be the fastest Audi S2 you'll ever see. It's very loud, and it's very fast. And by the look of it, it's very hard to drive. Plus it runs 197 mph in the standing kilometer. The S2 was based on the Audi Coupe and showed up in 1990. It came with a 2.2L turbo-five that made 217 hp. But...

    To celebrate the fact that race cars haven’t been legislated into oblivion, we present to you our Find of the Day: a real life race car. No, really!
