Vauxhall has signed off its 325bhp Insignia VXR saloon after completing its 10,000km shakedown at the Nurburgring.
Prices for the V6-powered Vauxhall Insignia VXR will start at £30,995 when it goes on sale in September. It is the first VXR model to feature four-wheel drive and it also features Vauxhall’s torque steer-reducing HiPerStrut front suspension system.
Andy Gilson, Vauxhall’s Marketing Director, said: “The Insignia VXR is not just about absolute power, but a combination of usable performance and chassis sophistication which is the match of premium rivals, such as Audi’s new S4.
“In essence, it’s an ultra-fast performance saloon that will appeal to buyers who appreciate subtle yet distinctive styling, but who need to know that there’s real substance below the car’s metal.”
Its 2.8-litre V6 Turbo ECOTEC engine helps the Insignia VXR reach 0-60mph in 5.6 seconds, with top speed limited to 155mph. It produces 325bhp and 320lb ft of torque.
Standard kit includes 19-inch alloy wheels, Recaro front seats, a new VXR steering wheel, VXR gearknob, different instrument graphics, VXR sill plates and a black headlining.
