Vauxhall Astra VXR Extreme coming to Geneva

Vauxhall goes all 'Megane R26.R' with its new Astra VXR Extreme concept car. Details here

Vauxhall has released a teaser image of an extra hot Astra, the Astra VXR Extreme. Derived from the Astra Cup race car that raced at the 2013 Nurburgring Endurance Championship, this new Extreme is labelled as a road-going race car based on the standard Astra VXR.

The standard car’s 276bhp and 295lb ft of torque remains, but thanks to carbon components and weight saving, the Extreme has gone on substantial diet. Emphasising its focus as a track car, the show car is fitted with a roll cage in the rear, racing seats and six-point safety harnesses.
