Imagine you're riding your bike on a given Sunday afternoon when all of the sudden your ears are flooded with engine noise and tire screeching. We'll end the scenario here because there's a high chance you are about to meet Tanner Foust and his 900 HP Passat beast.
After shattering the myth that says Passats are dull, Tanner Foust considered 900 HP are a waste of time and energy when kept in the garage and brought only for photo shootings.

Therefore, the professional driver teamed up with pro cyclist Tim Johnson and decided the USA Cycling Time Trials course in Chattanooga, Tennessee was a too quiet place.

As a result, the Rockstar Energy Formula Drift Volkswagen Passat was put to good use. And by good use we mean the type of four-wheeled desirable car hooliganism Ken Block started to practice a few years ago.

Now, before watching the video, a few details about Foust's Passat. The beast draws its strength from a 7.3-liter V8 engine good for 700 HP which can go up to 900 HP while on nitrous. Enough said, as by now you should be pretty much aware of the fact that there's little Passat left in the car. And that's due to some badges.

Since now you're aware of the evil source behind all those burnouts, drifts and adrenaline-pumping moments captured by onboard and outside the car cameras, you're ready to witness the complete one-minute madness. Is Ken Block finally going to have some competition for his Gymkhana discipline? You tell us, after watching the clip:
