Something NEW, Something gOLD

Side-by-side feature

The VW Scirocco GT24 was raced in the 2008 Nurburgring 24 hour even before the actual market launch of the production model.
The result is a 1-2 victory in the 2.0-litre turbo class. Impressive!

Then comes HotWheels, racing to bring this to our pegs and the result is a winner as well! Equally impressive!

Joining it at the background is the original Mark 1 Scirocco.

Something NEW, by HW

Something OLD gold, by Polistil-Italy

And something to look forward to from HW...
the red version as raced in 2009.

HI and thanks Danielh! Yup the old one is cool collectible :-) Maybe one of these days HW will bring a collectible Treasure Hunt of the new one!

Nice comparison with the OLD and NEW. Love that gold scirocco. I remember seeing them here during the 80's. =)

Hi and thanks Jovet. Sciroccos of the 70's and 80's were one of my childhood favs :-)

Hi Brian, glad you like the Rocco! Happy hunting ;-) a 1/43 is what you'd go for? That one I like to have as well!
