The New Astra VXR - It's Here - In The Showroom NOW

Posted by on

The new Astra VXR produces more power and torque than any car in its class: achieving 0-60 mph in 5.9 seconds, it's just begging to be taken out for a blast. Packing an aggressive 280PS, 400Nm 2.0-litre turbocharged direct injection engine, it's quicker than its main rivals by 40-50Nm, and achieves a top speed of 155mph. It also undercuts its rivals in price, with its keen UK pricing of £26,995. And when you take into account its drop-dead exterior styling - including meaty 19-inch alloys - and a striking race-bred interior with sports pedals and premium VXR sports front seats, this extraordinary VXR won't just turn heads, it'll blow minds. While the Astra VXR is based on the Astra GTC, it has a custom-built chassis - developed at the renowned Nürburgring - which transforms it into a focused, high-performance coupé with specially developed HiPerStrut front suspension, limited-slip differential and Watts link semi-independent rear suspension. Plus continuous damping control for unparalleled connection with the road. Power and performance - the new Astra VXR comes fully loaded and ready to fire.
