• The 310 ps Golf GTI Clubsport S. The fastest production FWD around the ring!




    Who says you cannot channel 200 ps through the front wheels of a FWD car?
    So what if I say you can channel 310 ps through the front wheels of a FWD production car and smash the current lap record around the ring. Yes, No?

    Well the Golf GTI Clubsport S just changed that for us.

    Driven by Benny Leuchter the Golf GTI was able to achieve 7 min 49.21 secs around the ring at times hitting 157 mph.

    Autocar explains how it was done as well as the changes to the vehicle to achieve such a feat.

    Manifolds are easy to come by, but k-jet is great for a road car. Fast, cheap to run, minimal maintenance.
    The engine spec is full race, fancy head

    Hah, guess I should have kept it if it increased that much in price, but I guess the expense of bunging a 20v and other stuff in it probably cost quite
