Each Arctic Edition also gets £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.
With 240 PS of power and 320 Nm of torque between 2400 and 5000 rpm, it'll hit a top speed of 152 mph, with 60 mph arriving from standstill in 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.Vauxhall celebrates 30 years Astra sales
