As a trio of race-prepared, factory-entered Scirocco racers took part in the Nürburgring 24-hour race in 2008, a road-going sister car, the Scirocco GT24 Concept, was unveiled in front of Volkswagen fans at the annual Wörthersee Festival in Austria.

The Scirocco GT24 is much more than a styling exercise. At its heart is a race-tuned 2.0-litre four-cylinder TSI engine developing 300 PS at 6,500 rpm. This is mated to a six-speed DSG gearbox which channels drive to the front wheels. The gearbox features uprated clutch plates along with revised gear ratios and a lightened flywheel linked to a differential lock.

The vehicle is based on the shell of the Scirocco race car, prepared by Volkswagen Motorsport in Hanover, and is finished in Volkswagen Racing Blue. Although many components are carried over from the road car - a testament to their strength - the Scirocco GT24's dimensions vary significantly, with a 227 mm gain in length and 61 mm gain in width to accommodate a wider track. Lowered, adjustable race damper units account for a 75 mm drop in ride height on a set of 18-inch lightweight racing wheels housing 362 mm (255 mm at the rear) racing brake discs clamped by six-piston callipers.

With many components removed from the road car the Scirocco GT24 weighs 178 kg less to tip the scales at 1,120 kg. Inside the Scirocco GT24 the driver and front seat passenger are held securely in a pair of lightweight Recaro bucket seats by a set of five-point racing harnesses mounted within a tough rollcage. A unique steering wheel and electronic display as well as a precautionary fire extinguisher furnish the race-focused interior. Set into a carbon panel are simple toggle switches which control the ABS settings and electrical and ventilation systems.

The road-going Scirocco, on which the GT24 concept is based, goes on sale in the UK on August 29th. It will be powered initially by a 2.0-litre TSI engine developing 200 PS linked to a choice of six-speed manual or DSG gearboxes.
