    that side profile makes it look like VX have taken a Toyota Yaris and redone the front end. Not for me I'm afraid. The subtle yet aggressive look of the Corsa C Sri is much more to my taste. That Corsa is too bubbly if there is such a word

    Now where did I put all of those Irmscher bits?

    I'm not taken by the styling but then again I wasn't with the Astra H (now I love it) nor the Irmscher body kit for the G. However this does lead the way for Reiger, Lumma, ect to produce some awesome body kits.

    What really concerns me is the vxr is a 1.6T. Now I'd love to know the engine code. But the question is why haven't they run a 1.8T? Or just a 1.8 (like what is in the corsa C SRI)?
    Seat are on the second generation of these cars and are producing over 200 BHP now. Where as teh corsa VXR is about to be released with only 200bhp. (I say only).

    But we have to be mindful that the Corsa VXR isn't for everyone. Vauxhall have to be mindful that they must appeal to the right type of people. Producing what is IMO an ugly car means that I'm gonna be looking for another body kit and sure enough there will be one along and I'd take me money to vaux buy one and slap a body kit on it.
    Like wise I'm expecting to see these with an LEH engine in before a couple of months is out. So lets look on the good side of things 200BHP from a 1.6 is impressiveon the vxr. power to weight ratio is gonna be awesome. I can see a really nice body kit on it in black will really do the deal for me. Modding potential is high.
    Its a jam thing

    It's a rebadged Punto, so what do you really expect?

    Then again, the Corsa always looked like ass, and it still sells by the millions (even I had one!).

    I quite like them. Might be interested in the VXR when it finally comes out.

    Hold up, the Isuzu engine was the good one the Vaux 1.7ohc derv was crape even in low pressure turbo form, 1.7 td (Isuzu) in the cavs and early Mk3 astras was even better.
