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.
And also had exclusive video footage.
Also on Piston heads some highlights.
