The Suzuki Hayabusa is one of the fastest things I have ever seen in motion. A friend riding his was in front of me once at a stop, and the road ahead of him was long, straight, and wide open. The only way to describe how it looked from my car was "Millenium Falcon makes the jump to hyperspace." And to think, his was only mildly tuned.

The 'Busa's 1300cc engine is strong enough to see duty in cars, too. The Westfield Megabusa immediately leaps to mind, and the German Car Blog has tipped us off to another example of Hayabusa-powered four-wheeled fun courtesy of the madmen at H.R. Engineering in Essex.

These guys have taken a Mk1 VW Golf, converted it to rear-wheel-drive, and dropped a turbocharged, 350-horsepower Hayabusa mill under the hood. It looks like a ton of fun, sounds completely evil, and its acceleration is, well... rather brisk, as you'll see in the pair of vids embedded after the jump.

Chewy... PUNCH IT!

      Holy crap! They managed to keep the sound of the Busa engine whilst in that Golf, and it was plenty fast!

      If you think this is fast, check out this company that installs bike and vtec engines in to most things... http://www.zcars.org.uk/

      My friend has a Turbo Busa Streetfighter. I'll be with him on my 1000rr (near redline) for a few blocks and feel pretty good. We'll get to a light and I'll ask him if he was on it and he'll be all, "dude... i never got over 5000 rpms."

      365hp and 470lbs soaking wet.

      They need to take that to the track and get some times on it. It sounds great. You could hear him bouncing off the rev limiter.

      Hot dang, that disappeared into the horizon really quick.

      And just think, you can go WOT as early as you want and no need for the extended swing arm or worry about the front end lifting off...

      Wow.
