Golf Hayabusa Engine Bay

Remember the Smartuki? A Smart Fortwo with a Suzuki engine. Here’s a similiar engine in a chassis that looks alot less likely to topple over any moment – the Mk1 Volkswagen Golf! In a chassis that’s been stripped down to weigh 650kgs, the 1.3 litre Hayabusa engine has now been turbocharged to make over 350 horsepower. Not sure if these videos were recorded before or after the forced induction modification. Nevertheless, the engine sounds damn sweet. Three videos after the jump.
