Opel’s British arm, Vauxhall is launching a special edition model limited to 500 units called the Astra VXR Arctic.
As you would expect with any limited series the Vauxhall
Astra VXR Arctic Edition gets special features like black painted front
grille, exterior mirrors, roof and tailgate trim which contrast the
Olympic White body finish plus 19 inch black rims.
At the interior the Vauxhall Astra VXR Arctic Edition received Recaro seats for the front passengers that are also heated, a Panoramic Widescreen while on the technical side the car’s suspension is now lower and stiffer.
The Vauxhall Astra VXR Arctic Edition produces 240 PS and 320 Nm of peak torque, meaning it can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 6.2 seconds and hit a maximum speed of 152 mph. 
A set of perforated brake discs at the front complete the package and the Vauxhall Astra VXR Arctic Edition price starts at 23,595 GBP manning 720 GBP more than the regular version.
Vauxhall press release :
Luton–British Summertime may have begun, but Vauxhall’s
latest addition to the VXR range still looks cooler than last week’s
snowstorms, yet its performance is as hot as ever.
Priced at £23, 595 on the road – just £720 more than the standard
Astra VXR – each of the 500 Arctic Editions are painted in Olympic
White with a contrasting black painted roof, mirror covers, front
V-grille and tailgate trim, ensuring that this version of the Astra VXR
looks like no other.
Each Arctic Edition also gets a generous £1965 worth of options
included in its price. Heated leather Recaro front seats, tinted glass
and Black 19-inch multi-spoke alloy wheels all now form part of the
Astra VXR Arctic Edition’s armoury.
And for the first time on a VXR product, customers can also specify
their Arctic Edition with the Panoramic Windscreen, a £920 option that
offers a window on the world that extends back over the front seats
with heat-absorbing glass. And if the skies are grim, a full-length
shading system with pull-out sunblinds is also included.
Of course, none of this diminishes the Astra VXR Arctic Edition’s
exceptional performance. With 240PS of power and 320Nm of torque
between 2400 and 5000rpm, it’ll hit a top speed of 152mph, with 60mph
arriving from standstill in just 6.2 seconds. Lowered and uprated VXR
sports suspension, ultra-low profile 235/35 x 19 tyres and 321mm front
ventilated brakes discs complete the Arctic Edition’s dynamic package.
And what better way to test a new Astra VXR Arctic Edition than at
Vauxhall’s VXR Power Events. Starting this month and culminating in the
VXR Power Festival at Silverstone in August, Power Events gives VXR
drivers and enthusiasts the chance to test their mettle (and their
metal) in a series of driving challenges. For full details, please go
