A 26-year-old Volkswagen Golf III 1.9 diesel with very high mileage is still able to reach a very decent top speed as shown in this video.
Dating from 1995, this Volkswagen Golf III has nothing special a priori, except that it displays 1,100,000 km on the odometer! In 26 years, this car has been driven a lot and we can frankly rent its legendary robustness. It must be said that its atmospheric 1.9 liter diesel engine developing 67 hp and 124 Nm is not really pushed to its limits! This kind of mechanical is therefore able to last a very long time, failing to be very swift.
In this video posted by the TopSpeedGermany account, a YouTuber wants to push the venerable Golf to its limits on a portion ofhighwayGerman where speed is not regulated. The poor car reaches 120 km / h relatively easily and then takes a long time to climb higher. In the end, it still reaches 170 km / h, an astonishing pace for this kind of engine who has traveled around the earth several times. A last baroud honor before soon experiencing recycling due to increasingly strict environmental standards.
