Default Worlds fastest VW? (salt flats LSR)

Anyone know for sure what's the land speed record for a VW-powered car?

The Double Eagle ran a touch over 227 in its first run today. Tomorrow morning is the backup run to lock in the speed ("official" speed is the average of two runs)

This is a V10 touareg TDI engine.

Best Info I could find is 227 mph is the current land speed record for a VAG, set by a Skoda factory race team in 2013. Anyone have any better info?
