Speedo actually has kms and miles, and is hopelessly inaccurate, so i wouldn't use it to judge the video, it also has a taller tire than vw intended. This isn't and never will be a fast straightline car (unless a 1.8t or something is shoehorned in), but given the right bit of road it is a seriously fun little car on the twisties and has surprised more than a few higher powered, modern cars on the track.

If i had the means and time i would be dead keen to buy it back and turn it into a track/tarmac car a la berg cup.
