The ultimate family hatchback - the racing VW Golf

Tom Webster

Volkswagen has created an extreme version of its Golf hatchback that comes with a 2.5-litre five-cylinder turbocharged engine, but sadly it is bound only for the racetrack.

The Golf24 is destined to race in the Nurburgring 24 hour race in June and signals a return to the race for the hatchback as it hasn't competed there since 2007.
