Default Vauxhall Astra VXR-R / S and Corsa VXR-R / S by Thorney Motorsport





Quote:
Thorney Motorsport, a UK based tuner that specializes on road and track cars has launched its own range of modified Vauxhall Astra and Corsa VXRs (sold in the rest of Europe as the Opel Astra and Corsa OPCs). Both hot hatches are available in two variants, the VXR-S (Sport) and the more heavily modified VXR-R (Race) with Thorney Motorsport announcing that only 25 units of each version will be produced.

The entry-level VXR-S models come equipped with a race suspension set up that brings the Astra and Corsa VXRs 30mm closer to the ground, uprated brake pads, lightweight 18-inch black alloy wheels, sport livery, a sport exhaust system and engine upgrades.

In particular, the Astra VXR-S' 2.0-liter turbocharged engine develops an output of 280 bhp for a 0 to 60mph (96 km/h) sprint of 5.2 sec and a maximum speed of 160 mph (257 km/h). The Corsa VXR-S 1.6-liter turbo unit produces 220 bhp accelerating the hot supermini from standstill to 60 mph in 5.8 sec and on to a top speed of 150 mph (241 km/h).

The more track-focused VXR-R models are further enhanced with a competition developed suspension (40 mm lower), racing brakes with 4 piston callipers and larger discs, a limited slip differential and more extensive engine upgrades.



The Astra VXR-R delivers an impressive 300 bhp that allows the 3-door hatchback to accelerate from zero to 60 mph (96 km/h) in just 4.9 seconds and achieve a top speed of 170 mph (273 km/h). Respectively, the Corsa VXR-R's 1.6 Turbo makes 230 bhp for a 0-60 mph sprint of 5.4 seconds and a maximum speed of 160 mph (257 km/h).


All four models are only available as new cars from the Thorney Motorsport Performance Centers that are located within Vauxhall's dealer network.

Adding more power to the VXR isn't really helpful unless they fix that bad torque steer problem

The Corsa has one of the nicest interiors I have ever seen, they (GM) has a hand full running around the Warren Tech Center. I would LOVE on of those, but FWD = IMO
