The Vauxhall Corsa VXR has now been officially revealed - pricing, specs and engine details are:

The hot hatch is powered by a turbocharged petrol engine which produces 202bhp and 206lb ft of torque. Another 26lb ft is available on an overboost function.

The Corsa VXR has suspension lowered by 10mm over the standard three-door model on which it is based. Vauxhall says the model is fitted with dampers specially developed by Koni called Frequency Selective Damping (FSD), which are claimed to allow for both a comfortable low-speed ride and composed body control at higher speeds.

The ESP and traction control systems are two-stage and switchable, a Vauxhall first. A Competition mode disables the traction control and minimises the intervention of the ESP, and Track mode also disables the ESP completely.

The electric steering software is said to have been revised to be "more direct and precise", according to Vauxhall, with "improved feedback through the wheel".Offered as standard are 17in alloys shod in 215/45 R17 Michelin tyres. The front brake discs are 308mm in diameter.

On the options list is a Performance Package, which adds a Drexler-supplied limited-slip differential, larger 330mm Brembo brake discs at the front, harder settings for the FSD dampers, and larger 18in alloys. This package is a replacement for previous Nürburgring and Clubsport editions of the Corsa VXR in the past.

figure on paying around £18,000 for a standard car, and something closer to £20,000 if you want the Performance Pack. Which you will... :mrgreen: :mrgreen:
