Vauxhall Insignia VXR SuperSport revealed, priced from £29,749

The updated Vauxhall Insignia was unveiled earlier this summer along with an all-new Insignia Country Tourer.

The Insignia range is now complete with the unveiling of a new flagship VXR SuperSport, UK’s fastest car you can buy under £30,000 with a top speed of 170mph.

The new Insignia VXR SuperSport benefits from the same design and chassis revisions as the entire Insignia range.

The VXR SuperSport is distinguished from the standard model with modified bumpers, new alloys and the tailpipe trim integrated into the rear valence.

The adaptive all-wheel-drive chassis has also been improved, and together with modifications to the ESP software offers even more precise handling and control of understeer.

Power comes from a turbocharged 325bhp 2.8-litre V6 engine with 435 Nm of torque and linked to a six-speed manual it goes from 0-60mph in 5.9 seconds (6.1 seconds for Sports Tourer), while the top speed is 170mph.

Other updates include an all-new instrument panel and central console design, incorporating optional Bluetooth-operated internet connectivity, an 8-inch touchscreen, 3D navigation and voice control.

The Insignia VXR SuperSport continues to be available as either a Hatch or a Sports Tourer and is available to order now. Prices start from £29,749 for the Hatch and £31,049 for the Sports Tourer.

The new Insignia range will make its public debut next month in Frankfurt.
