Watch the Jetta go 211mph on Bonneville

Looks like we are finally getting some footage of the new land speed record that VW set at Bonneville. Really incredible what they we're able to achieve with a 2.0l 4 cylinder engine. That's 275hp per liter lol.

That's the benefit of supercharging an engine. This Jetta is running 60psi boost pressure, which is incredibly high. Still a really fast record even for 550hp.

Makes you wonder what sort of performance models we could get from VW, if their hands weren't so tied by new fuel economy and emission regulations. There's obviously a lot of restricted potential in their 2.0l engine from factory.

I did find it a bit odd that he shut down the engine almost immediately after finishing his runs. Is it not typically better to allow the engine to idle a bit longer to cool off? Perhaps this model has some kind of coolant pumps?

With the kind of power that its putting down, you can almost guarantee that's the case. I believe coolant pumps are standard on the EA888 engine. And I'm sure that he was following the instructions from the VW team.

Matt has driven a lot of cars and comes from an automotive background that most people can only dream of, safe to say this was meant to happen.

Wonder if the transaxle was stock or the gears and axle ratio changed?
