Astra VXR breaks cover for car finance fans!

Chavs in the UK can now breathe a sigh of relief as Vauxhall have finally unveiled the fastest Astra ever with the new VXR.

Chavs in the UK can now breathe a sigh of relief as Vauxhall have finally unveiled the fastest Astra ever with the new VXR. The new hot hatch will be based on the GTC and will boast a 280bhp 2.0-litre turbocharged engine that should help it keep up with the best from Ford and Seat.

Worried about the legendary torque steer that plagued the old car with less power? Don’t worry, as Vauxhall claim the new one will feature a whole host of new chassis modifications that should help reign in that power – or so they say.

What do you think, though? We think the Astra VXR is not only quite the looker, but also quite restrained for a VXR model – is this the dawn of the respectable VXR?
