A Low-weight, high-powered Astra VXR The EXTREME


Vauxhall have released the pictures of one of its new concept cars to be shown at Geneva. The Astra VXR EXTREME, which we are told will be the basis for a future low-volume production run.

The radical derivative has come from last year’s Astra Cup race car that competed in the Nürburgring Endurance Championship. The EXTREME is the street-legal race sibling to the current Astra VXR. In standard form the car already produces 280PS and 400Nm of torque.

The EXTREME’s ultra low weight is the result of liberal use of high-quality carbon components, the EXTREME’s natural environment will be the race track. All the expected components for this, an integrated safety structure, racing seats and six-point safety belts drives will be available.

2014 marks ten years since the VXR brand was launched in 2004. The Astra VXR is now the best-selling VXR. The UK market remains the largest market in Europe for Vauxhall’s highest powered cars.
