Volkswagen's presenting the racing variant of the Scirocco GT24 on Worthier Lake at a world premiere. "This car doesn’t need to be driven to look fast. The Scirocco GT24 with the blue-white finish sits so low on its extended wheel wells that a hand will not fit between the wheel arch and the tire. Yet the race car remains unmistakably a Scirocco from every angle. Just even wider, even longer and even lower," says Dr Ulrich Hackenberg, Volkswagen Chairman for Development, who will not lose the opportunity to sit at the wheel in that race on the Eiffel.
