1983 Volkswagen Rabbit G60 Drag Car (Fast G60 Bunny)

Last updated May 9, 2007  

Photo of a 1983 Volkswagen Rabbit G60 Drag Car (Fast G60 Bunny)

No longer owned


This is my old drag car. It was a gutted and lightened supercharged VW Rabbit that turned the quarter in the 12 second range. In total I had about 3,000 into this car and had a great return on it. I ended up tearing it down to build another street car but ended up selling all of it off to go to college.


Supercharged 1.8L from Corrado
210hp & 247ft/lbs (not a misprint)
5 speed with welded diff

Factory Options

Not sure


Rebuilt supercharger with 68mm pulley making 16psi
Scirocco 16V transmission with welded diff
MSD 6BTM ignition with 2-step and boost retard
Eurosport header with cherrybomb muffler attached to it (it was a budget racer)
Isuzu Impulse intercooler
Wet 50-shot of nitrous
Race101 designed front & rear suspensions
Extensive lightening (one race seat, panel of switches, nothing else, lexan everywhere but the windshield, rear floor cut out, etc...)
Keiser 13" drag rims with older ET slicks

Made a series of 12.5 second passes at about 113mph while blowing the slicks off through the top of fifth.
12.5 @ 113mph in the quarter
7.9 @ 93mph in the eigth
