Volkswagen Scirocco GT24
Model Number: 58508
The 2008 24 Hours Nurburgring had Volkswagen debut a contingent of new Scirocco GT24 race cars.
They went on to earn an impressive 1-2 finish in their inaugural race.
The car was later updated with a new 2.0-liter inline 4-cylinder turbocharged engine that was notable for being powered by Compressed Natural Gas (CNG), which reduced CO2 emissions by 80%.
This machine again demonstrated its superb performance, capturing the AT (alternative powertrain) class titles in 2009, 2010, and 2011.
The Tamiya R/C car model is produced in 1/10 scale and the featured chassis underneath is the TT-01 Type E (Tamiya's entry level 4WD easy to build chassis).
The RC model depicts the Scirocco GT24-CNG which raced in the 2011 24 Hours Nurburgring.
