Vauxhall Astra VXR Nurburgring Edition

The Nurburgring circuit in Germany was tested by the new Astra VXR Nurburgring Edition.
Just as the ‘Ring Edition’s 237bhp blown four-pot is identical to the standard VXR, its chassis settings have also been left untouched.
Namely the striking white-with-black check accents paint job, 18-inch rims, again soaked in white paint, and a REMUS back box; and some interior graphics including the obligatory numbered plaque. All of which means “Nurburgring” is probably set to go the way of “GT” or “Grand Prix” and become tired, overused and hackneyed. In the next few years, no doubt, it will be brutally raped by the marketing men and plastered all over miserable little end-of-line hatchbacks with pencil-thin tyres and tinted-glass sunroofs.

Opel Corsa OPC / Vauxhall Corsa VXR

Opel recently added a new member in the family. Opel Corsa OPC is the newest release and will be presented for the first time at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2007.
The model can be included in the sport category for its appearance and its technical characteristics. The OPC presents a 1.6 liter turbocharged engine, developing 192 hp which gives the possibility to accelerate from zero to 100 km/h in 7.2 seconds and reach the top speed of 225 km/h.
The car is provided with an “overboost” facility, which allows the maximum torque of 230 Nm to be increased to over 260 Nm.
All though it is a performing model, when it comes to the fuel consumption the OPC requires only 7.9 liters per 100 km.
The new OPC goes with 17 –inch alloy rims and 215/45 R17 tires, also available with 18 –inch rims and 225 tires.

Opel Corsa OPC / Vauxhall Corsa VXR
With a 16 –inch break system that ensures deceleration, a well-designed chassis, an ESP system and assisted power steering, Corsa OPC is the perfect image of performance and viability.
Having a sophisticated interior and a sport chassis, the OPC tends to be this year’s greatest success.

Vauxhall presents the new Insignia

Opel or Vauxhall presents the new competitor for Mondeo, Insignia, and a great model that it is 21 cm longer, 5 cm wider and boasts an extra 35 mm between the axles, compared with the outgoing Vectra.
Chassis-wise, the Insignia will pack a revised version of GM’s IDS active suspension system and optional adaptive all-wheel drive. At launch, engine options will include three petrol lumps and a pair of oil burners. The petrol options range from a 140 hp 4-pot to a 260 hp V6. The diesel option takes the predictable form of a 2.0 liter 4 banger in 130 hp or 160 hp trim. Vauxhall has not put a date on the arrival of either the EcoFLEX model or the inevitable VXR high performance machine.
Official interior images have not been released. The Insignia will initially be available in hatchback and saloon body styles. No official info as yet on prices, speeds and feeds. Do you like it?
