Designed to compete with the Citroen DS3 R, the Corsa VXR Blue Edition features unique paint job and an exclusive interior.

Vauxhall has unveiled the limited edition Corsa VXR Blue for the United Kingdom.

Designed to compete with the Citroen DS3 R and Mini Cooper JCW, the Corsa features Arden Blue metallic paint, tinted windows, and 18-inch alloy wheels. Interior tweaks are relatively minor, but include "bespoke" air vents and Recaro seats.

Like the standard VXR, power is provided by a turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine with 192 PS (141 kW / 189 hp) and 260 Nm (192 lb-ft) of torque. It enables the car to accelerate from 0-60 mph in 6.8 seconds, before hitting a top speed of 140 mph (225 km/h).

Set to arrive at dealerships next month, the Corsa VXR Blue Edition will be priced from £19,425 (including 20% VAT).
