Spy Shots – Vauxhall Astra VXR

Vauxhall Astra VXR

The guys from Auto Express have taken this week several spy shots with the Vauxhall Astra VXR while undergoing some tests before its official release which will happen sometime in the beginning of next year. The car will be able to do the 0-62 mph sprint in less than 6 seconds, en route to a maximum speed of more than 150 mph.

The new generation of the Astra VXR will be able to develop 300 hp, which is considerably more in comparison to the 237 hp of the outgoing model. Those ponies will be sent to the front wheels and it is expected to come as standard with a limited-slip differential.

As you probably know this by now, the model is based on the three-door GTC but it will come with bigger alloys, a more muscular bodykit and a rear spoiler. In addition, the Astra VXR will be equipped with cross-drilled Brembo brakes for additional stopping power.

The car is expected to carry a starting price of about 25,000 pounds.
