This little bastard you see here is the baby of Jeremy Freedman who is a Golf GTI enthusiast. And a dead serious one as it turns out, because his GTI has a colossal 800-hp output which gives it an officially recorded at Texas mile top speed of 208.1 mph! His car is a Mk III 1997 Golf GTI powered by a modified VR6 engine, which also features some deep changes in terms of drivetrain. It’s all good, but going 208 mph in such a tiny box must be quite scary!
