MkI Volkswagen Polo by AME Racing – Click above to watch the video

Remember that drag racing, 700-horsepower Saab 99 with the Audi Quattro chassis swap? Well here's the MkI Volkswagen Polo version of that car, by AME Racing. The Wild Wild East German tuning house thoroughly reworked the motor, getting 1,032 horsepower and 701 pound-feet out of the 1.9-liter lump. Yes, a giant turbo is involved. Redline is a sky-high 9,500 rpm. Going from standstill to 60 miles per hour takes 2.3 seconds. That's less time than it took you to read that sentence.

We'll let the car do the rest of it's talking. Follow the jump to see the vid and watch a Polo do things that can only be described as "ridiculous."
