You might remember the racing version of the VW Scirocco R Cup which was powered by a bio-gas engine and acted very well at the Nurburgring 24 hour race.

Now they have also made a rally version of the car with the same spec. It has made its racing debut at Rally Germany, where two examples were driven by Carlos Sainz and Nasser Al-Attiyah, both very big names in rallying.
