The Volkswagen Scirocco fleet at the start in 24 hour race Volkswagen plans to demonstrate once again at the 24 hour race just how much dynamic potential the Volkswagen Scirocco R possesses. An entire fleet of two-door cars, five cars altogether, will enter the marathon ride through the "Green Hell" there all of them bear a close resemblance to the production vehicle, both technically and visually.
Three of the Volkswagen Scirocco GT24 versions are powered by a TSI gasoline engine with 315 PS. Two other VW Scirocco GT24 cars carry the additional CNG label, designating Compressed Natural Gas, because their TSI is fired with very cleanly combusting natural gas - an exception in car racing. The 300 PS Volkswagen Scirocco GT24-CNG cars have extremely low emissions.
Instead of the usual six-cylinder used so far in R-models of this segment, a boosted four-cylinder TSI is being used in the new VW Scirocco R. Its advantages: very high power and torque values with significantly reduced fuel consumption. On average, just 8.3 liters of super unleaded flows to the combustion chambers via direct injection per 100 kilometers of driving. That corresponds to CO2 emissions of 194 g/km - top values for a fast 250 km/h (electronically limited) sports car.
