Red Baron runs a 7.98@175mph

At Speedworld Dragstrip in Arizona, Eric Calabrese and Scott Fetherolf managed to do what no other VW Doorslammer could.

Their ’57 VW Sedan (The Red Baron) smashed its way into the 7 second zone with an amazing pass of 7.9869@175.37mph. This is the first time in history that a VW Doorslammer of any kind has run a 7 second quarter mile!

It’s worth noting the Red Barron is a stock wheelbase and back-halved car running a 2.3 liter air-cooled boxer engine. Turbosmart’s Pro-Gate50 helps in controlling the boost.
