Doing 200 MPH (make that 320 km/h) on public roads is anything but a laughing matter. Then again, it's extremely difficult to focus on anything else than the Audi RS6-lifted dashboard instruments of this Golf and this is how things reach the status mentioned in the title above.
This Mk IV Volkswagen Golf, which we've featured before, was built by a group of Kosovo-based car nuts -in fact, the machines used to be a V6-animated R32. And since they used Audi RS6 (the C6 generation) instruments, the boys also showed the Ingolstadt velocity machine's V10 inside the engine compartment of the Vee-Dub.

In fact, as you can see in this video of the GolV (we enjoyed gifting the car with this nickname), the engine didn't exactly fit under the bonnet. As for those hefty pipes you see in the video, they're a generous clue towards the twin-turbo upgrade the powerplant has received.

And while we still don't know the output figures of this GolV, we can confirm this is an engine that can easily go past the 1,000 hp border (2,000 ponies? Sure, anything is possible with such a V10). And even though we mention all these details, nothing can prepare you for the experience offered be seeing the speedometer's frenzy ascension in the video below.

In the rush of the moment, you can almost ignore all the terminal illness warnings that show up on the monochrome display between the tachometer and the speedo - perhaps all the sensors will be calibrated in the future.

For now, though, speed is all that matters. And, as you'll be able to notice in the image gallery, this contraption knows a thing or two about dealing with velocity. For instance, the 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) sprint takes 2.5 seconds.

The car still has a long way before reaching a complete performance makeover, but , as we mentioned above, the priorities are obvious here.
