Vauxhall has replaced the 325PS Insignia VXR with the 170 mph VXR SuperSport, which costs £29,995.
According to Vauxhall, the VXR SuperSport has the highest top speed of any car under £30,000 including the BMW 135i M Sport; yes the speed limiter has now been removed. Acceleration is pretty brisk with 0-60 mph taking just 5.6 seconds, which is just 0.3 slower than the BMW.
The Vauxhall Insignia VXR SuperSport is powered by a 2.8-litre V6 Turbo ECOTEC engine, with a micro-alloy forged steel crank, classic 60-degree cylinder angle and die-cast alloy sump – all features found in many a race engine. Producing 325PS, the engine uses a single, twin-scroll turbocharger and variable valve control.
The all-wheel drive VXR SuperSport is fitted with an adaptive chassis featuring Vauxhall’s HiPerStrut front suspension, which maintains negative camber, improving grip levels in wet and dry. FlexRide, Vauxhall’s adaptive damping system, is also standard, and comes with a special VXR setting for enhanced response.
The Insignia VXR SuperSport comes with Vauxhall’s Lifetime Warranty and is available to order now through Vauxhall’s approved VXR dealers.
