Vauxhall Insignia SuperSport can hit 170 mph image

The British based automaker Vauxhall has recently announced the Insignia VXR SuperSport, which will be able to hit an impressive 170 mph.

According to the car manufacturer, Vauxhall is planning to offer the most affordable car which can reach 170 mph and the plan is to outgun the current BMW M5 and steal some customers from the powerful German sedan. The Vauxhall Insignia SuperSport has no direct rivals and it’s a path opener for its future competition considering its top speed of 170 mph and the top speed of the M5, 155 mph and its starting price of 73,000 GBP.

Besides announcing the Vauxhall Insignia SuperSport, the carmaker has also slashed almost 4,000 pounds from the price of the regular Insignia, dropping it to 29,995 GBP. This isn’t the first time when Vauxhall is producing a performance sedan and back in 1990 the Carlton executive sedan has been transformed into a 176 mph super sedan. Power to the model came from a 3.6 liter straight six twin-turbo engine, which was producing a total output of 377 BHP. The Vauxhall Insignia SuperSport is coming with a 2.8L V6, with a twin-scroll turbocharger, forged steel crank and alloy sump, generating 320 HP, sent to the AWD system. The 0 to 60 mph sprint will be over in just 5.6 seconds.
