Volkswagen Scirocco GT24 unveiled

Volkswagen has finally revealed the official details surrounding its race-prepped Scirocco GT24 that will participate in the Nürburgring 24-hour endurance race in two days.

This incredible machine features a highly-modified version of the car’s standard 2.0-litre TFSI engine pumping out 242kW and maximum torque of 340Nm at 2,100rpm.

Yet the race car remains unmistakeably a Scirocco from every angle. Just even wider, even longer and even lower,” says Volkswagen Chairman for Development Dr Ulrich Hackenberg

Power is transferred to the front wheels through VW’s 6-speed DSG dual clutch gearbox, identical to the transmission used in the road-going model.

The interior has been entirely stripped down and fitted with a full roll-cage, Recaro racing seats with five-point harnesses and a competition steering wheel - adding up to a total weight reduction of 178kg. The car will be driven by a team of racers including rally world champion Carlos Sainz and Hans-Joachim Stuck, three-time winner of the 24-hour Nürburgring race.
