VW Golf Needs A Passat To Outrun Lamborghini Gallardo

By  | 

By now, most of you should be aware that the Volkswagen Golf is really great hatchback money can buy. Aside from just being affordable to own, the Golf also comes with a world-beating performance in the name of the GTI and the R.

But no matter how good the Volkswagen Golf R is, one should know better than to utilize the car in a competition against the Lamborghini Gallardo. The turbocharged engine on the Golf R is just not strong enough to compete with an Italian supercar but that did not stop one owner from trying.

A footage of a drag battle involving the Golf and the Gallardo surfaced online earlier today and it saw the sports hatch doing the unthinkable – beating the Italian supercar. But of course, it is not a stock Golf R. The owner actually replaced the mill with a 3.6L twin-turbo V6 sourced from the Passat. The outcome is as embedded below.
