Vauxhall Corsa VXR For Sale

Clydesdale Classic Cars is proud to offer for sale this stunning low-mileage Vauxhall Corsa VXR Nurburgring Edition on behalf of its current family member-owner.

He has owned the car since May 2019. This is the best VXR Nurburgring we have seen in a long time, and I am sure the new owner will not be disappointed with their purchase.

The only thing not original is the entertainment system. The current owner purchased the car from B Eyre & Son Ltd in May 2019 with 8,820 miles on it. In his ownership, the car has never been used in the winter and is always garaged.

Introduction to the Vauxhall Corsa VXR Nurburgring Edition

The Vauxhall Corsa VXR Nurburgring Edition is a high-performance version of the Vauxhall Corsa supermini car, produced by Vauxhall Motors, a subsidiary of Stellantis.

It was developed at the Nürburgring Nordschleife test circuit in Germany and was launched in 2011. The car features a reworked version of the VXR’s 1.6-liter turbo engine, sports exhaust, and modified turbocharger system. The engine produces 205 bhp (153 kW) and has a top speed of 143 mph (230 km/h) with a 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) acceleration time of 6.5 seconds.

The car also has LED running lights, bi-xenon headlights, twin Remus exhaust, ESP stability control system, Koni dampers, traction control, heavily bolstered Recaro bucket seats and VXR badging. The Corsa VXR Nurburgring Edition was available in the UK only in limited numbers.

A legendary name that took some living up to. But the Corsa VXR Nürburgring Edition didn’t disappoint. Blooded on Germany’s notorious Nürburgring Nordschleife test circuit, a 205PS 1.6 litre turbocharged engine, Bilstein-developed chassis setup, uprated sports exhaust, and high-performance Brembo braking made this the most powerful Corsa ever.

But the Drexler mechanical limited-slip differential helped tame the power and enhanced the cornering. 0-60mph in 6.5 seconds, this was a hot hatch to take to the max.

Vehicle Summary

Starts, runs, drives and stops as it should. The only negative is light rust starting around the rear left hand wheel arch (see image) and a small scuff at the lower left hand front bumper. It would have been easy to fix these, however, we didn’t want to hide anything, and the new owner can decide what to do about them. We have also set the reserve to allow for these repairs. Everything in the car works, it runs and drives fantastic, just drive and enjoy.
