Volkswagen will enter this year’s Nurburgring 24 hour endurance race with an improved version of the Scirocco GT24 CNG. There will be three Scirocco GT24 CNG entering the race during the weekend of May 12-16, 2010 and their improved state may help them do better than last year’s results of 40th and 49th place in the overall classification. We imagine they are more than hopeful in this year’s performance especially since they have boosted the cars involved from two to three.
All three cars are powered by a 2.0-liter TSI engine powered by natural gas and delivering a total of 330 HP (an increase from 325 HP). The CO2 emissions has been reduced by 80%.
Compared to the 2009 model, the improved Scirocco features a larger braking system, two additional light units and a new active electro-hydraulic differential (just for one of the three cars).
