    The car you see here, the Vauxhall Astra VXR, is fairly typical fare for the unusual VXR performance sub-brand. It is identifiable not by its common theme of focused, high-revving pace, startlingly sharp handling or race-derived engineering nous.

    Vauxhall’s mid-size coupe challenger caused a stir when it became available to order in June. With a starting price of just £18,495 and dramatic styling from a design team led by Brit, Mark Adams, the GTC is set to wow UK customers and rock the established front runners in its class – the Volkswagen Scirocco and the Renault Megane Coupe. But the GTC’s appeal runs far deeper than its rakish lines. Unlike many three-door versions of existing compact hatches, the GTC – like the Astra Sports Hatch ...

    These are the first official pictures of Vauxhall’s most powerful Corsa ever, the new VXR Nurburgring Edition, which goes on sale in late May and aims to raise the bar in the hot-hatch class for performance and dynamics.

    These are the first official pictures of Vauxhall’s Zafira Tourer Concept, which makes its world debut at next week’s Geneva Motor Show and gives the strongest hint yet at what a production-ready version may look like. Combining “lounge-on-wheels” luxury with the same high degree of flexibility the Zafira name has become synonymous with over the last 12 years, the concept’s cabin has a light, airy feel and generous space for rear-seat passengers. ...

It will also feature a UK-honed and track-developed chassis designed to give it ...

    Vauxhall’s storming VXR8 model is back with a vengeance, packing heavily revised front and rear end styling, a new cabin and a raft of new technology to enhance its appeal to drivers in search of one of the last, great rear-drive V8 super-saloons. Priced at £49,500 (inc. 20 per cent VAT) and available to order later this month, the new VXR8 is now based on HSV’s E3 GTS model, just launched in Australia, the previous VXR8 representing the old version of the lower-spec ClubSport R8 ...

    A funny video posted on YouTube by Total Vauxhall Magazine shows one of the production line robots at Ellesmere Port taking some time out from building the Mk6 Vauxhall Astras to play some golf. In September it was announced that more than 300 jobs will be created at Vauxhall's Ellesmere Port plant thanks to securing the contract for the Astra Sports Tourer, which also secures the jobs of 2,500 workers already based at the factory for the immediate future. ...

    A bit a of a random article for MIGWeb, but in an attempt to push the Vauxhall/Opel brand, Katie Melua has been appointed brand ambassador. The main push appears to be in relation to social responsibility - and in particular highlights the forthcoming Vauxhall Ampera hybrid car due for release in 2012.
