Vauxhall Corsa VXR Nurburgring Edition Reaches UK
The fastest and most powerful Vauxhall Corsa ever made has finally arrived in the company’s UK dealerships where it carries a price tag of 22.295 pounds which is almost 3,400 pounds than the regular VXR model which will set you back “only” 18,900 pounds.
The new model is motivated by a retuned version of the 1.6-liter turbocharged engine of the VXR and now it unleashes 205 hp @ 5,750 rpm and a peak torque of 207 lb.-ft (280 Nm), which is more than the VXR’s 192 hp and 196 lb.-ft.
They’ve managed to squeeze more power from that engine by modifying its management as well as the turbocharger system, while also adding a brand new sports exhaust which offers support for 98-octane fuel and comes with reduced back pressure.
Vauxhall says that its special edition Corsa VXR can do the 0-62 mph sprint in 6.5 seconds, being able to hit a top speed of 143 mph (230 km/h). The company’s engineers equipped the car with a new mechanical, multi-plate limited slip differential in order to improve traction.
As for the handling capabilities, these have been updated thanks to the installation of Bilstein dampers and springs, more powerful and lighter Brembo brakes and also by lowering the ride of the car by 20 mm in the front and 15 mm at the back. In addition, the Corsa VXR Nurburgring Edition comes with recalibrated Electronic Stability Control and Traction Control systems.
Regarding the appearance of the vehicle, it now features stainless steel dual exhaust tips, a new design for the forged alloys that have a high-gloss grey finish, along with a bunch of “Nurburgring” logos on the front spoiler lip and the B-pillars. In addition, customers are able to choose from two new paint finishes: red “Henna” and apple green “Grasshopper”.
Inside the cabin, the vehicle has been fitted with black & red “Nurburgring” letters on the sill plates as well as front Recaro seats. Lastly, it has white stitching for the gearshift console, the handbrake as well as on all the seats.
