Volkswagen will enter this year’s Nurburgring 24 Hours rave with this all-new racing version of the Golf.
Dubbed Golf24, the all-wheel drive racer is equipped with a turbocharged 2.5-litre five-cylinder engine that develops 434bhp and 398lb ft mated to a sequential six-speed paddle-shift gearbox.
Initial testing of the Golf24 has already taken place at Portimão in Portugal and Vallelunga in Italy ahead of its appearance in the famous race at the Nurburgring in late June.
Volkswagen has entered its Scirocco GT24 in the past three Nurburgring 24 Hour races, achieving class victories on each occasion.
“The competitiveness of the event has increased enormously meaning a new technical concept was required,” said VW in a statement.
As well as competing in the 24 Hour race at the Nurburgring, VW will also enter three other endurance events at the circuit.
