Vauxhall Corsa VXR Arctic Edition with 207Hp
At the forthcoming British International Motor Show on July 22, Vauxhall will reveal a limited edition version of the Corsa VXR -known as the Opel Corsa OPC in continental Europe. Only 500 Corsa VXR Arctic Editions will be sold in the UK, and each will sport unique Glacier White paintwork combined with dark tinted rear windows and a black-painted roof and door mirrors, new black 18-inch V-spoke alloy wheels wrapped in ultra-low profile 225/35 tires and a Remus Sports exhaust
Thanks to the Arctic Edition’s Remus Sports exhaust, the VXR’s 1.6-liter turbocharged engine’s output is raised to 207Hp, up by 15Hp compared to the basic version. Vauxhall hasn’t announced performance figures, but don’t expect any significant differences to the stock VXR’s 0-60mph (96km/h) time of 6.8 sec and 140mph (225km/h) top speed. The VXR Artic Edition is priced at £16,995 ($34,000), or £995 more than the standard Corsa VXR.
