    1370390280

    There are plenty of things to love about the Mk1 Volkswgen Golf. The machine's horsepower isn't one of them. From the factory, the little hatch cranked a breathy 112 horsepower from the most robust form of its 1.8-litre four-cylinder engine. Boba motoring, however, has taken that figure and multiplied it by a factor of nearly 10. If 1,000 horsepower ...

Even so, we still have yet to see the North American-spec version of the car, though that won't be the case much longer. As part of the New York Auto Show festivities later this month, Volkswagen ...

The German tuner has a way with the Volkswagen Golf, and the MkI example you see above has been touched with 736 horsepower – that's right, 96 more ponies than a new SRT Viper, all trying to get to ground through those two front wheels. The 2.0-litre, ...
