993 Turbo Powered Volkswagen Bus Is Insanity Done Right

The Volkswagen Bus, especially the T1, is known for the slow life, bruh. This one, however, has been pumped up a bit. 

The Volkswagen Bus, especially the T1, is known for the slow life, bruh. This one, however, has been pumped up a bit. This Volkswagen Bus has the heart of a Porsche 993 Turbo, which adds just a few hundred horsepower over stock. To go along with that, the Bus has had its entire chassis strengthened, and a whole lot of custom suspension work done. It is clear to see that this is no ordinary VW. 

With all of that said, however, it still must be such a shock to see one of these on the race track as it still has the frontal area of a house, and must still have a lot of weight pretty high up in the air. Would I like the opportunity to drive a machine like this one? Absolutely. Do I think I'd still be scared out of my mind negotiating the Nurburgring Grand Prix circuit sitting up that high? Yeah, I sure imagine it would be at least a little frightening. 

I have to applaud the owner/builder of this VW Van, as it was a build that must have taken hundreds of man-hours and lots of dedication. For more, check out this piece on Speedhunters from a few years ago, and be sure to follow 19Bozzy92 on YouTube for more great track videos.
