Volkswagen has unveiled three remote controlled Golf GTE "shuttle" vehicles at the 74th International Stadium Festival (ISTAF) in Berlin. 

Designed to transport sporting equipment - such as discuses and javelins - the 1:5 scale models feature an electric powertrain and a special controller which enables event officials to drive the R/C cars to athletes and different sporting events.

Volkswagen didn't have much to say about the cars themselves but noted it's the first time that both athletes and their equipment have been chauffeured in Volkswagen models.
