The Volkswagen Golf24 will make its 24 hour race debut at the NÃ¼rburgring this weekend. It has been created to celebrate the 35th birthday of the GTI. In some ways it’s an odd tributeâ€”with all-wheel drive and a 2.5 litre inline five cylinder engineâ€”it features a drivetrain never seen in a GTI before and one never likely to be seen in the future.
Sure, as a road car the Golf24 would look completely stupid. As a racecar, though, it is pure porn. To celebrate that fact we’ve assembled the best pics available to date from Volkswagen Motorsport. Check them out after the break.
