The new Opel/Vauxhall Astra has already been launched in most of Europe and in the UK. Still, this doesn’t mean fans of the older generation can’t get such models.
In order to further help them and to deplete their stock, obviously, Vauxhall released a special Arctic edition of the VXR performance model. As you may remember, the Vauxhall Corsa VXR Arctic edition was unveiled a couple of years ago.
Basically, this “cool-er” version of the VXR has the same 240 HP power output, but will boast a black finish for the roof, exterior mirror housings, window tints as well as on several fascia pieces. Other high end features include 19-inch alloy wheels and special, heated Recaro racing seats.
Only 500 Vauxhall Astra VXR Arctic edition models will be made, each starting from £23,595 ($36,019, given current exchange rates). Besides those extra goodies, you can also opt for other features, like a panoramic roof.
