Vauxhall over the duration of their existence in both the new and used car trade have had many big sellers on their hands, some of these which include the likes of the, Corsa,Insignia and indeed the Astra but, we highly believe that this sportier than ever addition to the range has strong potential to out sell all of them if plans fall through in the way the mass manufacturer are hoping.
So with that being said and what has been announced regarding this being the fastest Astra available around the world,what make it special and what exactly has gone into the vehicle itself. Well the mass manufacturer has officially announced some of the key standout features and we do expect to hear a lot more when the car is officially revealed next week at the Geneva motorshow but what is it we know about the vehicle so far?
Well firstly they have announced that we will see the welcome addition of a 2.0 litre, turbo tuned engine that in total will carry a whopping 296 units of brake horsepower. It has been confirmed that the model is available in only a front wheel drive format but, it does come complete with a six speed manual transmission system. A limited slip differential also comes as part of the package too. We also see the inclusions of race specs, adjustable dampers and the king of brakes, Brembo brakes.
In regards to the look and layout of the vehicle itself,it comes complete with a carbon fibre front splitter,a quad exhaust system, alloy and carbon fibre wheels also come as a part of the package too.
