To show off the performance credentials of its brand new Scirocco, Volkswagen has begun preparing a special race version coupe for the 24-hour Nurburgring race.

The car is powered by the same 224kW 2.0 TFSI engine as used in last year’s class winning Golf GTi hatch entry and features a DSG gearbox with steering wheel mounted shift paddles.
