At first they wanted to fix the old Volkswagen Golf for sale, but in the end they decided to create an incredible powerful hot hatch. The car can be used for everyday driving by turning off one of the engines.
Mechanic Willem Jacobus from South Africa created an incredible project based on a 1979 Volkswagen Golf. He equipped the compact hatchback with two VR6 engines, with a total power of 500 hp. Details about the unusual car were told on the YouTube channel Cars.co.za.
The enthusiast first wanted to fix an old Volkswagen Golf for sale, but then he came up with such an unusual project. According to him, creating this crazy car was not so difficult.
Willem first cut out the back of the car to fit the second engine and gearbox. After the first ride on the race track, the enthusiast felt that the hatchback did not have enough power. To remedy this, both engines were turbocharged.
As a result, the twin-engine hatchback develops 500 hp. and a torque of 745 Nm. According to the creator of the car, it accelerates at an incredible speed.
The most difficult part of the assembly was the clutch for the two engines. Later, another enthusiast, Robbie Ferreroy, suggested how to make the whole complex structure work.
Willem noted that the front engine is slightly ahead of the rear, but this helps to keep the car stable at high speed. The clutch is still working too hard.
The enthusiast shared that he uses the car for everyday driving. If full power is not needed, one of the engines can be turned off using a button in the cabin.
In the future, Willem is going to race with a modern Golf R. He wants to make sure that his creation can handle the new model.
