Vauxhall VXR Blue features blue paint, 18-inch alloy wheels and an overboost button
17 January 2011

Vauxhall has unveiled the Corsa VXR Blue edition.

The special edition version is powered by the standard VXR's 1.6-litre turbocharged engine, producing 189bhp, but torque is increased to 192lb ft: this is thanks to an overboost button which increases torque by 22lb ft when needed.

The company claims a 0-60mph time of 6.8 seconds and a top speed of 140mph.

Features of the Blue edition include blue metallic paint, 18-inch alloy wheels, sports suspension, uprated brakes, tinted windows and a new front spoiler.

The blue theme continues in the interior as well, with a blue stitched steering wheel and bucket seats, and blue coloured air vents.

Available to order now, prices start from £19,425, which undercuts its rivals - the Citroen DS3 R and the Mini Cooper Works - by up to £3,600, the company claims.
