Reaction times are a wonderful thing, especially at the drag strip. Case in point, this Golf R that eats a Ferrari 458 Italia for lunch.

It's hard to say just what's happening under this Golf R's hood but whoever's behind the wheel ( our money's on that 75-year-old Brit from a few weeks ago ) isn't letting the side down.

The video shows the R take on more than just a Ferrari, too. Everything from a Skyline to an RS6 is taken on here and our sleeper hero beats most of them.
