VX Racing Editions come dressed in the race team's red and black color scheme. The fire-engine red VX comes accented with alloy wheels in a glossy-black and 18-inch rims for the Corsa, 19-inch for the Astra.

In these difficult times it's forgivable to find yet another special edition Vauxhall Astra and Corsa that simply provide mostly cosmetics and maybe a few extra horses. In fact, in a competitive market, such special editions may even offer some value for your money and its always nice to see a manufacturer do a little of its own tuning.

Here Vauxhall introduces the Corsa and Astra VX Racing Editions, variants of the VXR version of those models. The special editions are meant to celebrate Vauxhall's victories in BTCC (British Touring Cup Championship) racing last year, where Vauxhall captured all three titles - the manufacturers', drivers' and team championships.

The VX Racing Editions come dressed in the racing team's color scheme of red and black. The fire-engine red VX comes accented with alloy wheels in a glossy-black with 18-inch rims for the Corsa and 19 for the Astra. There's also VX Racing badges on the B-pillars and tread plates. Black highlighting of the VX Racing Editions also includes a tinted rear window, a rear diffuser and side strips and mirrors all in black too.

Inside the cabin are leather Recaro seats and interior décor strips in Piano Black.

The package also includes discounts on Remus exhaust system (which can push power up by about 20 hp) and Vauxhall performance parts and accessories.

The two editions will have a combined limited production of 888 vehicles, in tribute to Triple Eight Engineering who build the VX Racing cars for the Vauxhall team.

Prices for the Corsa and Astra VX Racing Editions, respectively, are £ 17,425 (19,500 euros) and £ 21,445 (24,000 euros).
