An all-new ‘experimental vehicle’ will be shown in Frankfurt. Promises to wow the press and public
16 August 2011

An experimental vehicle, which “explores a new interpretation of driving fun,” will be unveiled by Vauxhall at the Frankfurt motor show next month.

No details are known about the new car yet, but it promises to “wow the press and public with its level of innovation,” according to the company.

Also to be revealed for the first time are the Vauxhall Astra GTC and Zafira Tourer.

The Astra GTC goes on sale in the UK later this year and will be available with petrol and diesel engines ranging from between 118bhp and 178bhp.
