The fastest Volkswagen Golf will compete tomorrow at the Nurburgring-Nordschleife in the legendary 24-hour race. The spectacular Golf24 has been prepared specially to take place at the race - June 23 to June 26, 2011. Fitting the 35th anniversary of the Golf GTI, Volkswagen Motorsport has developed a thorough-bred racing version of the world's highest-volume production car.

It is powered by a 2.5 liter five-cylinder turbocharged  engine with 440PS (324 kW) and 540Nm of torque. It features four-wheel drive, a sequential 6-speed gearbox with paddle shifters and, last but not least, an impressive body shell.
