Vauxhall Insignia VXR SuperSport Revealed, Priced From £29,995

Vauxhall has released a high-performance Insignia VXR SuperSport that replaces the Standard VXR. Top speed is 170mph – 15mph more than its predecessor, yet costing £3,760 less than the outgoing car at £29,995, making it UK’s fastest and most powerful sub-£30k car.

The Insignia VXR SuperSport is almost identical to its predecessor. Visual identifiers include blue ‘Brembo’ lettering on its front brake callipers and additional increments on its speedometer.

At the heart of the VXR SuperSport is a 321bhp 2.8-litre V6 Turbo ECOTEC engine with power sent to a torque-sensing AWD system.

Acceleration from 0-60 mph comes in a pretty impressive 5.6 seconds.

£30k is a lot of money, though what you get is pretty good compared to competitors in the same performance range.

If you are looking for something less powerful, cheaper and want to stick with the Griffin logo you can always go with a used Vauxhall Astra. For under £5 you will be driving home a 4 year old vehicle, that will serve you well for many many years.
