Once you go past 200mph it isn’t just the suspension and the tyres you have to worry about. The biggest problem is the air. At 100mph it’s relaxed. At 150mph it’s a breeze. But at 200mph it has sufficient power to lift an 800,000lb jumbo jet off the ground. A 200mph gust of wind is strong enough to Smash an entire city. So getting a car to behave itself in conditions like these is Hercu-lian.

You might want to ponder that for a moment. Covering the length of a football pitch, in a second, in a car and play havoc with the space-time continuum.

This car cannot be judged in the same way that we judge other cars. It meets drive-by noise and emission regulations and it can be driven by someone whose only qualification is an ability to engage reverse and do an emergency stop. So technically it is a car. And yet it just isn’t.

Its a triumph for man over nature, for lunacy over common sense and a triumph for Volkswagen over absolutely every other car maker in the world.
