Vauxhall Astra VXR Extreme coming to Geneva

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.

Ten years on from the VXR brand’s birth, this low-volume version of VXR’s most popular car is set to be unveiled to the public at the 84th Geneva Motor Show this March.
