"Hey, let's all laugh at the little gray hatchback that guy brought to the drag strip! He wants to run it against high-end German and Italian sports cars! How hilari-oh, um, how much horsepower did he say it has? Uh, holy shit."
That must have been the conversation that went down when German tuners WKT brought their insane 685 horsepower Opel Kadett out for some high-speed runs. According to the YouTube video description, the little economy hatchback has a swapped 2.0-liter four with a massive turbo running 35.5 psi of boost.
That's a lotta boost.
And it clearly pays off when the car takes down a Ferrari 458 Italia and very nearly eliminates a tuned Porsche 911 Turbo. A Yamaha R1 emerges as the clear winner in the final race, but it's obvious this hatchback is a monster sleeper.
I wonder how the Ferrari owner felt after that race? Probably not great.
