RAPID: New Vauxhall Astra VXR Extreme
Vauxhall have revealed the first official image of the Astra VXR Extreme, ahead of its Geneva Motor Show debut and low-volume production run.
The low-weight, high-power concept – the street-legal sibling to the current Astra VXR – is derived from last year’s Astra Cup race car which competed in the Nurburgring Endurance Championship.
It uses high-quality carbon components to shed weight, while the vehicle also features an integrated safety structure, racing seats and six-point safety belts.
The release marks ten years since the VXR brand was launched, with the Astra VXR the best-selling of the line.
More information about the Astra VXR Extreme will follow next month.
