Drag Race: 420 HP Volvo S40 vs 400 HP VW Golf R32 [Video]
In the left corner, we have a titan of the Swedish drag racing scene, the 420 horsepower Volvo S40 T4 tuned by Autotech. This car has been kicking everybody's touchy and asking for more.
In the right corner, it's the VW Golf R32. Few other Volkswagens enjoy such legendary status, and the MkV body is also very nice to look at. But, the VR6 powered machine is not for show, as it also has north of 400 horsepower. That's 150 hp more than the 250 it would have gotten leaving the factory.
The V6 has been tuned with a Precision 6265E Turbo, Milltek Resonated Catback 2.75", C2 3", Downpipe, Vallbro extra fuel pump and ECU remap. It will do 0 to 200 km/h in just 15.2 seconds, but even that isn't enough to kill a Volvo.
