With the Volkswagen Golf VI R delivering 270 hp from its two-liter turbo, it’s difficult to call this hot hatch a sleeper. But what if you almost double the displacement and add another turbine?
Well, we are here to talk about the result of such a project. Meet a bone stock-looking Golf R that’s received a monstrous power upgrade from German specialist HGP Turbo and now likes to troll supercars.

The manic hatch is found in Russia, where it recently raced a Lamborghini Huracan for the fun of it. The Huracan might look like the “junior” member of the Raging Bull family, but it is actually almost as fast as an Aventador. To put it shortly, we are dealing with 610 hp and 560 Nm (413 lb-ft), which have to move 1,422 kg (3,135 lbs) about.

As for this Golf R, the 2-liter Turbo was ditched, making room for a Passat’s 3.6-liter V6. HGP dipped into the Audi parts bin, borrowing an RS3’s twin turbos and double-clutch gearbox. As a result, this Golf now produces 700 hp and 820 Nm (605 lb-ft), while tipping the scales at around 1,600 kg (3,527 lbs). We don’t know about any upgrades to the all-wheel drive system though.

In theory... ah, who wants to read this - just check out the video and see what happens when the two (cousins?) indulge in a drag race.

In case you’re wondering, this doesn’t seem to be one of those built cars that need oil as if they had a two-stroke engine. The tuning job was applied when the Golf had 40,000 km (25,000 miles) and the vehicle has racked up just as many miles since then.
