Volkswagen Builds 300 HP Scirocco For Nürburgring 24-Hour Race

A lot of people think VW's upcoming Scirocco could use a little more oomph under the hood. The stock engines are rated from 122 HP to 200 HP, but this new version has a 300 HP version of the 2.0-liter TFSI inline-four. That's because the car has been race-prepped specifically for next month's 24-hour endurance race at the Nürburgring.


Yep, this little fastback will be in the same race as the Gumpert Apollo Hybrid and the Lexus LF-A. Sadly, there are currently no plans for a version of the race car to hit the streets, but who knows. After all, the Aston Martin V8 Vantage N24 started life as a specially-built car for this same race just a couple years ago.

@smsolo1: I propose the Marshall Mathers Plan where we send Eminem to live in Germany until they send us some really hot Sciroccos.

Oh, and beer, they need to send us beer. And maybe some of those busty beermaids to serve the beer and to act as CoG balance for driving the hot sciroccos around corners. And bratwurst, definitely bratwurst, to go with the beer.

Anyway, that's the plan.
