Earlier this week we saw Opel launching the facelifted Insignia OPC and now Vauxhall is doing the same thing with its British counterpart, the Insignia VXR SuperSport. The car will be shown to the public for the first time at next month’s Frankfurt Motor Show in Germany where it will come with its updated headlights and modified bumpers. On the inside it has gained a revised infotainment system, different dashboard and switchgear. Vauxhall’s engineers also worked on the rear suspension and conducted some software optimization for the ESP, as well as for the adaptive damping system which is known as FlexDrive.
Under the hood of the Vauxhall Insignia VXR SuperSport is a V6 2.8-liter turbo rated at 325 HP and 321 lb-ft. Linked to a 6-speed manual gearbox, the car will do 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) in 5.9 seconds or in 6.1 seconds if you opt for the more practical Sports Tourer version. Both of them have a top speed of 170 mph (273 km/h).
Already available on order, the hatchback begins at 29,749 pounds while the aforementioned Sports Tourer will set you back 31,049 pounds.
