Vauxhall VXR Astra GTC With a sports-performance history which includes vehicles such as the legendary Chevette HSR and borderline-insane Lotus Carlton, Vauxhall's performance aspirations went relatively quiet for a good number of years as their focus shifted much more towards mass-market vehicles. Then in 2005, following influence from their Australian General Motors stablemate Holden, the VXR (VX Racing) division was born and a new lineage of affordable and very capable sports-performance vehicles was born. Here we have a 2012 model of the Astra GTC VXR, Vauxhall's three-door only, coupe-styled iteration of the Astra. With modern, sporty styling, upgraded handling and performance, and a cabin unlike any Astra before it, the GTC VXR offered a standard, very respectable 280bhp. Lessons learned from previous VXR models led Vauxhall to install HiPerStrut front suspension (previously used in the Insignia OPC model) which mitigates the torque-steer common in performance front-wheel drive vehicles. The rear suspension was treated to a Watts Linkage to minimise lateral movement of the axle and the wheelbase was enhanced to allow for fitment of low profile tyres. Added to all of this a Drexler Limited Slip Differential (LSD) and huge drilled brake discs and calipers by performance and racing legends Brembo. All of this results in smooth, manageable delivery of power and road-holding which is almost unparallelled in a front-wheel drive platform. This example, which was originally supplied directly from the GM Technical Centre, is finished in Vauxhall's striking "Racing Red" paintwork which is offset by the 20" forged Y-Spoke alloy wheels finished in dark, anthricite grey gloss. The previous owner has installed a carbon fibre roof trim, mirror caps and front grille which tie in nicely with the black bumper grilles and mid-dark window tints which are standard to the car. Further standard features which set this apart from the standard Astra are the extended front and rear bumpers, side skirts and rear boot spoiler. There are no major cosmetic modifications to this car which could not be undone should that be the preference of the new owner. Internally, the cabin is brilliantly appointed and a huge step up from any previous generation Vauxhalls or VXR models. Featuring ¾ Leather front sports seats with embroidered VXR logos and aluminium trims courtesy of none other than Recaro, which offer astonishing comfort and support. The leather trimmed multi-function sports steering wheel is incredibly tactile and gives the driver access to several functions through intuitive and simple controls. Where driver convenience is concerned, the GTC VXR benefits from Voice Control, Bluetooth connectivity, automatic lights, and a radio/CD player with AUX connectivity, it's fair to say that the GTC VXR has everything you could realistically need without getting too over-the-top in terms of features and gadgetry.

Further internal details such as the subtle piano black door trims, black headlining and VXR-Branded aluminium sill kickplates further the feeling of sports-performance while adding an element of luxury. Under the bonnet, this example has been treated to a high-flow cone air filter, Forge branded silicone hoses and an upgraded downpipe and turbo inlet pipe from RSS, all of which has been wrapped with gold foil insulation for optimal heat management. While we do not have a dyno for this car, these upgrades have given a noticeable improvement over standard performance and the engine and exhaust notes are mindblowing! What is really nice to see with this example, particularly considering its modifications, is the presence of a full service history. Pre-Delivery inspection was carried out by the General Motors Technical Centre and for most of its life the car was serviced by the Evans Halshaw main dealer network with a couple of interim services carried out by other non-dealer franchise
