Watch a Mk2 Golf Beat Modern Super Sedans

German tuners Donkey Tec have built the latest in their series of unreasonably powerful VWs. In the video below a black Mk2 Golf embarrasses a handful of performance cars on an old airstrip.

You may be familiar with Donkey Tec from their Youtube videos featuring a white Mk2 Golf that they say produces over 1000 hp.

Less information is provided about this monster, but the results speak for themselves. The tiny hatch leaves an Audi RS7, among others, in its dust. To put that into perspective, the RS7 (in American spec) reaches 60 in 3.3 seconds and costs nearly $130,000.

The races are run with a rolling start, which might have benefited the turbocharged Golf, but which makes the achievement no less impressive.

It is a little unnerving to see a car that looks so small next to these massive modern cars reach such high speeds. The Golf is faster than it has any right to be, but I guess it has to be to beat Goliath.
