• Quickest and fastest UK MKVI Golf R - GIAC tuned Golf R with FP HTA 3071 goes 11.0 @ 124.55

    To be just a tick away from breaking into the 10's with a 2.0 liter four-cylinder Golf certainly is impressive. This MKVI Golf R is from the UK and has the DSG dual clutch transmission. At the Santa Pod dragstrip it managed an incredible 11.0883 @ 124.55 miles per hour. It is a full weight with a Forced Performance HTA 3071 turbocharger and GIAC tuning. This is the quickest and fastest MKVI Golf R in the United Kingdom.

    Compare this result to an APR Stage III MKVI DSG Golf R from Australia that went 11.3 @ 121 and a 6-speed manual Golf R from the US with the APR Stage III kit that is the fastest manual MKVI Golf R going 11.6 @ 121.25.

    So who holds the overall world record? APR with a 10.8 @ 127.51 pass back in 2012 from a Stage IV car with a built motor and upgraded fuel system. This UK record appears to be the quickest and fastest recorded stock internal pass. Congratulations to the owner and GIAC.
