    VXR ...... Racing edition?

    Probably been talked about to death on hear but I stopped off at my local dealers to pick up my new washer jets
    and saw a corsa and astra in the show room... VXR Racing editions

    whats the deal with these? are they just a red VXR with black bits on or are they closer to the 'burg astras?

    I was thinking that an astra VXR would be on the cards towards the end of this year, but now I want and R6 so I was thinking a corsa vxr would be nice as it would look like i was down sizeing lol
    but after seeing the astra close up (my local dealers havent had one in for ages) i think i'm going to have to wait a little longer for a VXR

    anyway year whats this VXR Racing edition? anyone got / getting one?

    lol yea i think thats the thorney ms ones vxr-r and vxr-s
    this one is official vauxhall... all red with gloos black rims, gloss black rub strips and spoiler.
    oh and blue calipers

    the price was around 17k i think for the corsa

    and it had vx racing on its door pillars.

    the corsa was identicle

    the annoying thing is that noone at my local vx dealer seems to want to sell anything well at least to me anyway :S

    if i go again ill get some photos
