    Corsa VXR






    A very nice car, bigger than the Mk 3 GSI!

    The seats are superb, much nicer than those found in the bigger Astra, all in all it's what the Astra could/should have been.
    Tell me what you've done, not what you're going to!

    They are really sweet cars. I saw my first one today (it was a press car) parked up in a VX dealership in Glasgow. Had a good nosey around it (full of crap on the back seat though).

    The interior did look really nice, especially the piano black center console, recaro seats and flat bottomed wheel.

    I dont think I could justify the £16K price when I could get an Astra VXR 2nd hand with little miles for similar money.

    I wouldn't buy a new one but I think it's £15.5k which undercuts the oposition anyway. Will make a good second hand buy in years to come.

    I love the look of them, and they seem to get a good review with people saying it's the best car to wear a VXR badge so far. I'll bet the engine has a fair bit of potential too.

    i really like them, been trying to get my mum to trade her corsa in for one.

    love the interior, the 1.6 turbo doesnt hurt either!

    Had these at work doin the development on them. Hate the way the buttons are see thru, on all new coras's but i gotta say its one sexy little car. Very similar styling to Astra VXR but those seats made it to production. We never thought they would.

    When i was up at the preview thing that i went to the other week, (thread here), the guy who was talking about it mentioned that later in the year they're takin a bunch of Corsa VXR's down to a track somewhere, can't remember which one he'd said, for people to take them out and give them a proper testing. Obviously this wouldn't be paid for by them, like my night at the preview was, but i've got my mate who took me, on the case to find out where/when it is and see how much it is.
    Hope it's reasonably priced because i'll be going!
