You probably think Sweden is all about IKEA, ABBA and Volvos. Of course you do because, like me, you base all your cultural assumptions on asinine, outmoded stereotypes. Though few would be so willing to admit it, we’ve all done it from time to time, mostly when drunk off our backsides around the family barbie.
So what if I told you the Swedes – well, a few of them anyways – were big into racing stripped out, turbocharged Volkswagen Scirocco’s packing AWD and 627 hp (468 kW)? And not simply racing them but racing them on snow and ice. You heard right, and we have the video to prove it.
Sadly, we don’t know much more about the car and its driver than what we’ve given so far; our Swedish isn’t even as good as our grammatically flawed German and poorly enunciated French. Still, it’s a fun video to watch, and the sonorous sound of the turbo gives me goosebumps all down my back.
