Radical Vauxhall Astra VXR Extreme concept to debut in Geneva

Vauxhall has released the first official image of the Astra VXR EXTREME concept, which will be the basis for a future low-volume production run.

The Astra VXR Extreme is derived from the last year’s Astra Cup race car that competed in the Nürburgring Endurance Championship.

The Extreme is the street-legal race sibling to the current Astra VXR, which came out in 2012 with 276bhp and 400Nm of torque. The Extreme is expected to pack over 300bhp and it will also be lighter thanks to carbon components. The Astra VXR Extreme will be the fastest production Astra ever.

Other updates include an integrated safety structure, racing seats and six-point safety belts, making it perfect for the race track as well.
