Dude,

I don't think I trust those stats. I'm sorry, but any car that makes 900 hp, 629 lb-ft, has a top speed of 217mph, and only weighs 2376 lbs is going to go 0-60 a hell of alot faster than 4.5 seconds!!!! Plus, doesn't this thing run a 10 or 11 second quarter?!?!? I think that someone is just pulling numbers outta their.....yeah.

But, can I have this dash!?!?!?!?!

I think you're right V33. However, I did some more digging and the car really exists, it is a company car Dahlback and you have a choice from 600-900 BHP for the 1998 Golf.


DAHLBACK MAIN PAGE

Here is a quote from their site:

"The stock 1.8 litre engine has been replaced by an inline five cylinder 2.1 litre Audi turbo engine with two large intercoolers. The engine develops about 600-900 hp depending on the choice of turbo and setup. To make room for the larger engine, the inner fenders had to be replaced by chrome-molybden pipes."

But it's not a 4.5 sec 0-60, it's a 4.5 sec 0-100. I have some video's of this car running on the track and doing some donuts. The car is nuts!!!

the 0-100 is kilometers not miles meaning that is only does 0 to about 62 mph in 4.5 sec... and this car is very real.. if i can find the link i'll post this great video that dahlback made of this car...

Actually, if you look at the original link that TF gave us, it says 0-100 KPH, which is the same thing as 0-62 MPH.

But yeah, I know it's a real car, and I've read about it on Dahlback's web-site. That car is freakin awsome. Fender's straight from VW Motorsports!!! I want'm. But yeah, I've known about this car for about a year now, it's sweet.

Haha, I said the same thing as GL, guess I need to read the ENTIRE thread before I post!!!!



Oh yeah, and in all this digging you guys are doing, I don't suppose you've found anything that says how much it cost?? I know that first site said 1,000,000 DM, but I know not how much that is, and like I said, I don't know if I trust all those numbers.

Hm, I don't think that can be right either, because:
a) 1,000,000 DM equals roughly $500,000.00
and
b) DM are no longer in existence, Germany uses Euros now...

Acutually, for that car, I don't $500,000 would be too far off base. I mean, you take into consiteration that the pretty much the only thing on it that is untuched is pretty much the VW emblems!!!! (well, maybe there is alittle more untouched than that, but not much more)
