Vauxhall Corsa VXR Nurburgring Edition launched image

In a race to battle the French Renaultsport Clio special edition that was launched in the UK not so long ago, the “British” automaker Vauxhall has presented to the public its own version of a hot hatch, in the form of the Corsa VXR, named the Nurburgring Edition.

According to the manufacturer, the limited edition of the Corsa VXR is powered by a 1.6 liter turbocharged engine, which is delivering 205 horsepower and 280 Nm of torque, compared to the previous 192 HP and 266 Nm, the extra power coming from some ECU and turbo modifications, along with the new exhaust system.

Vauxhall says that its “new” VXR Corsa, wearing the Nurburgring Edition name, can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 6.5 seconds and it’s able to hit a top speed of 230 km/h or 143 mph, but all this power doesn’t come cheap: 22.295 British pounds is the price of the limited edition of the Corsa.

For that money, customers will get a lowered suspension, lighter Brembo brakes, ABS, ESC, Traction Control, dual stainless steel exhaust, new forged aluminum wheels and the Nurburgring logos on the B-pillars and front spoiler lip.
