Vauxhall’s VXR brand has come of age in 2014 with the latest addition of the mighty VXR8 GTS marking ten years since the VXR brand made its debut on UK shores.
There are currently five cars in Vauxhall’s VXR range: the Corsa VXR, the 210PS Corsa VXR ClubSport, the 280PS Astra VXR, the 325PS Insignia VXR and the 576PS VXR8 GTS. With a combined power output of nearly 1,600PS, there are few performance car ranges that offer so much power per pound.
More recently, models like the Astra VXR and Corsa VXR ClubSport have adopted sophisticated differential technology to cater for ever increasing power outputs. Manufactured by Drexler, the units help power to be applied more effectively through bends, giving the impression that driver is being pulled towards the apex under power.
