Volkswagen will field two Sciroccos powered by natural gas in the Nurburgring 24-Hour race over May 23/24.
After becoming the first automaker to win the
Dakar rally with a diesel in January VW is now tackling another challenge – racing twice around the clock using EcoFuel on the world’s most demanding circuit.
Each Scirocco GT24-CNG has a two-litre turbo engine powered by natural gas and delivering nearly 220kW. The factory team will also run three more Sciroccos with two-litre turbo petrol engines in the classic endurance race.
