With the wild DTM-style aerodynamics, the Golf24 makes use of a modified version of the turbocharged 5-cylinder powerplant from the Golf R, making 434-hp and 398 lb-ft of torque.
“With the new Golf24 we are continuing our successful commitment at the Nürburgring 24-hour race. [The race] represents a very big technical challenge…[and] we want to provide an additional highlight in front of a large audience – right in time for the 35th anniversary of the GTI,” said Volkswagen Motorsport Director Kris Nissen.
The Nurburgring 24 Hour race takes place June 25-26th.
