Video: Bugatti Chiron vs 900kW Volkswagen Golf MkIV

What’s quicker, a Bugatti Chiron or a Volkswagen Golf MKIV? Easy answer, right? Not necessarily, as this video demonstrates. Obviously the Golf is modified. A lot.

In the French corner the Chiron is powered by an 8.0-litre a quad-turbo W16 that develops 1500hp, or 1104kW. The beast is able to cover 0-100km/h in a claimed 2.4 seconds, and 0-200km/h in 6.1 seconds. The top speed is yet to be verified but it’s expected to top the current record-holding Bugatti Veyron Super Sport and its 431km/h achievement.

Over in the German corner is a humble VW Golf. However, instead of being powered by a mundane four-cylinder engine, this project car has had a 5.0-litre V10 conversion from an Audi RS 6. It’s had two turbochargers strapped on, and produces something like 933kW (1250hp).

Which is quicker? Check out the video below.


I like to think that I'm a car fanatic, but more of a driving fanatic. There's nothing better than getting out onto the open road, almost regardless of the car, and enjoying dancing with the controls and gathering up the moving scenery. If I'm not driving I'm either at the gym or sinking a few beers with friends.
