The Insignia VXR SuperSport can reach 60mph in 5.9sec
The car will be launched at the Frankfurt motor show next month
There is 321bhp on tap from a turbocharged V6 engine
With 321bhp coming from a turbocharged V6 engine and a top speed of 170mph, Vauxhall says the Insignia VXR SuperSport is the fastest car available in the UK for less than £30,000. The car can hit 60mph in 5.9sec and is mated to a six-speed manual gearbox.
The car has undergone a very light facelift since we last drove it in April, benefitting from a redesigned front bumper with what Vauxhall describes as 'sabre-tooth' detailing, as well as slight changes to the exhaust trim at the rear.
Underneath, Vauxhall has tuned the SuperSport's AWD chassis, replacing or revising around 60 per cent of components. The car's HiPerStruts, which Vauxhall says prevents geometry changes during cornering, remain on the facelifted car.
Handling and ride should both be improved over the old model thanks to modifications to the Insignia's ESP and adaptive damping systems, while noise vibration has also been reduced.
Inside, the Insignia VXR SuperSports gets a new instrument panel and centre console design to house the 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system.
Orders have already opened for the car, which costs from £29,749 for the hatchback, rising to £31,049 for the Sports Tourer model.
