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).

Why they are making a larger breaking system? Is there any issue regrading that specs? BTW, I wonder if this car is a hybrid or an electric version?

Well, aside from the Golf , the Scirocco would be the other production from the VW that really impressed me! The reliability of this car has no issue on me. And the speed, well, its quite adorable!

The fastest test time that one of these Sciroccos has achieved is 8:47:335, which is very promising for VW. Overall there is a lot of new technology embedded in this vehicle, showing that times are changing – even on the race track.

Damn, we are some unfortunate bastards here in the US. Wishing that we can get this SCIRROCO!!!

I like the looks and the styles of the scirocco, it looks sexier and smoother than the Golf GTi.

The Scirocco is making splashes worldwide as Volkswagen just announced that they’ll be fielding three Scirocco race car concepts at the Nurburgring 24-hour endurance race starting on May 12.
