Another variant of new Opel Corsa.......checkout here:

http://www.eurocarbl...pc-vauxhall-vxr

Carscoop has published the first official images of the Vauxhall Corsa VXR, the english version of the Opel Corsa OPC, from which it will differ only in the front grille and in being right-hand drive instead of left-hand drive. The Opel Corsa OPC will be shown in public for the first time at the next Geneva auto show (march 2007).

The Corsa OPC / Vauxhall VXR will feature 18" alloy rims, aggressive front apron and rear spoiler, race-like external mirrors and a big triangular exhaust tube, embedded in the rear air diffuser. The interior will feature Recaro sport seats and a flat-bottomed steering wheel.

The engine is a 1.6-liter turbocharged unit derived from the one mounted on the Meriva OPC, which on the Corsa will output 190 ps and 261 Nm of torque. Thanks to this engine, the Corsa OPC will sprint from 0-100 km/h (0.62 mph) in 6,8 seconds, a tad faster than the Clio RS, with a top speed of 225 km/h. To cope with the added power the suspensions have been revised, with new damper and spring settings. Some help will also come from a new ESP system.

The new Vauxhall Corsa has already caused quite a sensation with its bold styling and impressive road manners, but now the wraps have come off the long awaited performance flagship VXR version – the lightweight turbo 1.6-litre engine of the VXR produces 192PS (189.3 bhp) and more than 260Nm to give it a top speed of 140 mph (225 km/h) and acceleration of 0-60 in 6.8 seconds. Despite its wild performance, the Corsa VXR promises to be an affordable car to run, with surprising fuel economy on extra-urban routes of 44.1mpg (5.3 liters/100 km) according to official figures and the combined fuel economy figure is 35.8mpg (6.57 liters/100 km).

Sweeping side skirts and an angular roof spoiler help accentuate the three-door Corsa's already muscular design, while a mesh front grille, blue-painted brake callipers and optional 18-inch alloys further set off the VXR's performance appearance.

The interior is dominated by the sculpted, shell-backed Recaro sports seats and the race-car style flat-bottomed steering wheel. Drilled alloy pedals, piano black trim on the facia and unique VXR detailing on the dials and gear lever make sure the Corsa VXR looks as special inside as it does on the outside.

Power comes from a compact 1.6-litre turbocharged engine, developing 192PS and giving Corsa VXR the ability to accelerate from 0-60mph in just 6.8 seconds, on to a top speed of 140mph. Like the Meriva VXR, it comes with an 'overboost' facility which can increase the torque output on demand to a maximum of more than 260Nm – useful for safe overtaking.

The power is kept in check with a dynamically-designed chassis including a specially-tuned ESP system, along with uprated brakes and suspension and variably-assisted power steering, which alters the weight and feel of the wheel depending on the way in which the car is driven -- a feature unique in this area of the market.

Yet despite its wild performance and impressive technology, Corsa VXR promises to be an affordable car to run, with surprising fuel economy for a 140mph car. On extra-urban routes it returns 44.1mpg according to official figures and the combined fuel economy figure is 35.8mpg.

The Corsa VXR will make its public debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March, and will be available from Vauxhall retailers from mid-March. Prices will be announced nearer to the on-sale date.

Sorry to all for digging up this old thread (instead of posting new thread).
Saw a review by JK in today's Malaysian The Sunday Times talking about this car, wonder is it ever going to make it to Singapore.
To give Golf GT, Peugeot 207 GTi, and also Fiat Bravo a run of its money.
Anyone got any info??

I don't think it can make it here. Because the volume is small and GM can't price it competitively.
But its remind me of the Daihatsu GTti thumbsup.gif

The Corsa should make it to our shores but the question is when ! Since it is already June, it only a matter of months before the new model year 2008 turns into the corner and bringing in a "old" model would not make economic sense to both GM and the dealer. My best guess, is that the Corsa should come around Nov or Dec 2007 just to make it into the new year 2008. As for the OPC model, I would think that GM should bring this in as well. Imagine, 1.6 turbo with 192 bhp ! Very few babes can beat that ! If it ever gets here, it should be very popular among the boy racers and give an important boost to the Opel name here.
