Here's a video of the Golf24 in action.

The Golf24 marks the return of VW's storied hatch to the 24hr race at the Nürburgring-Nordschleife after an absence of four years.

The video shows the hot-hatch testing on the track in its full racing guise with a large rear wing and wide-body wheel-well vents.

The endurance racer is a (permanent) all-wheel drive touring car based on the VW Golf VI which boasts an output of 440 PS (324 kW) from a revised 2.5-liter five-cylinder turbocharged VW Group engine.

The Golf24 will race at the Nürburgring-Nordschleife 24hr race which takes place from June 23 to June 26.
