Overview
The 2008 24 Hours Nürburgring had Volkswagen debut a contingent of new Scirocco GT24 race cars. They went on to earn an impressive 1-2 finish in their inaugural race. The car was later updated with a new 2.0-liter inline 4-cylinder turbocharged engine that was notable for being powered by Compressed Natural Gas (CNG), which reduced CO2 emissions by 80%. This machine again demonstrated its superb performance, capturing the AT (alternative powertrain) class titles in 2009, 2010, and 2011. The Tamiya R/C car model is produced in 1/10 scale and the featured chassis underneath is the TT-01 Type E (Tamiya’s entry level 4WD easy to build chassis). The RC model depicts the Scirocco GT24-CNG which raced in the 2011 24 Hours Nürburgring.
