Built by a small tuner called Mtech Motorsport, this second-generation Golf has been gifted with a V6 engine from a Passat R36. Gifted with a monstrous twin-turbo setup, the unit now delivers the stunning output mentioned above.
The compact was gifted with an all-wheel-drive setup, but you'd have a hard time believing this judging by the never-ending wheelspin delivered by this Volkswagen.
The first piece of footage below shows the Golf struggling to put its power down and we're not just talking about the take-off phase of the quarter-mile adventure. The Mk II skids all over the place right up to the end of the sprint, turning the 1,320 feet adventure into a bit of a skating episode. We can only imagine what would happen if this Golf tried to accelerate on non-prepped asphalt.
There's no reason to fret, though - as it often happens with such runs, the team behind the contraption worked around the traction issues of the vehicle - at times, the all-wheel-drive burnouts delivered by this VW Golf rival the 2WD tire-smoking moments offered by lesser go-fast machines.
The results of that work can be seen in the second video below, which sees the Volkswagen Golf delivering its quickest run to date - we won't spoil the fun by mentioning the time or the speed values achieved by the Volkswagen, which await you behind the "play" button below.
