Actually, Vauxhall Corsa VXR, is an English copy of the Opel Corsa OPC, so that they look identical. And designed in the traditions of the genre: a more aggressive bumper with large air intakes, developed body aerodynamic “skirts”on sides, low-profile tires.

VXR undergone processing in Performance Center. It got a lot of technical and appearance upgrades, causing just drug addiction. Get it, and it shall roar, just like R400 Caterham, pulling at the hearing even half-deaf in a radius of a mile. Pass mark of 4 000 rpm, and Corsa will present you with 220 horsepower with an appropriate roar and begin to pull the wheel out of your hands. Add more speed, and it shall roar like ready to explode incendiary projectile, from which the drive will only intensify. More rigid and low suspension behaves not so good on irregularities, but you’ll take it on a steep turns.

No official technical details yet. But as reported earlier, Vauxhall Corsa will get engine developing 210 HP the power expected from the turbo volume of 1.6 L. If hot hatch really will supply this power unit, the new Vauxhall Corsa VXR is not only faster and more dynamic than the previous generation with a 192-horsepower engine, but slightly more powerful than its main competitors. For example, Renault Clio RS has 200 HP, Ford Fiesta ST comes with an engine capacity of 182 HP and motor VW Polo GTI develops 192 HP.

Some experts argue that much more powerful than the new Opel Corsa OPC may be the only Mini Cooper JCW, which will be equipped with two-liter turbo engine with a capacity of 230 HP.

The previous generation hot hatch was required for this 7.2 C.Despite the fact that the basis for Opel/Vauxhall Corsa fifth generation is the platform of the previous generation, suspension have been seriously modified. The car uses reinforced components, rigid frame, electric power-steering with city mode, which provides excellent maneuverability at lower speeds and during parking.
