VW Golf – with 6.0 litre 12 cylinder

Seems like the folk @ VW are getting bored, and have a “need-for-speed”, so they created a monster VW Golf – that runs from 0-100 in 3.7 seconds !

This is just a concept car – but what a car !

Volkswagen GTI W12-650 Concept

…stuffed the mid-section of a Mk5 GTI with a 650-hp (477 kW) version of the W-12 found in the Bentley Continental GT.

The engine is mounted longitudinally, and its 550 lb-ft of torque makes its way to the rear wheels through a six-speed automatic transmission.

And the resultant urgency should be obvious: the GTI bangs off zero to 100 km/h in 3.7 seconds, and tops out at 202 mph (325 km/h) !!
