Wolf in sheep’s clothing: HPA R32

Twin turbo R32? Yewbetcha.

It’s no secret that we’re big fans of the Volkswagen R32 (whether MkIV or MkV). But when you add an HPA twin turbo kit, the car, highly capable as is in stock form, becomes a genuine track weapon capable of hunting big game like Porsches and Corvettes. Perfect for someone who truly values the Q-car aesthetic (or just really loves the People’s Car).

Be prepared to pay (mightily, depending on who you ask) for the privilege of 550 bhp, though.
