FWD wagon vs. RWD super car.
Old, Volkswagen diesels have a reputation for being slow – like absurdly slow. They’re mostly used nowadays for vegetable oil conversions and to make everything smell like the French fries from your favorite fast food joint.
Except for this old-school Volkswagen Passat wagon. We’re going to put our reputation on the line here and say that this is packing a little more something substantial than the little diesel four-pot found in the factory models.
The unsuspecting Volkswagen Passat lined up against a mighty Ferrari 458 Italia in what might have seemed like a David vs. Goliath race to the average person.
However, this front-wheel drive Volkswagen oil-burner absolutely obliterated the state-of-the-art, modern day exotic in a straight line. That’s pretty freaking cool.
Keep blowing doors off, you crazy diesel Volkswagen, you!
