We knew this was coming. But there weren’t any spy photographs of the upcoming high-performance version of the Opel/Vauxhall Astra GTC to solidify the rumors, until now thanks to Auto Express.
The publication speculates that the Astra GTC OPC/VXR too-many-letters will launch with over 300 brake-horsepower from a boosted 2.0L Ecotec to the front wheels, relying on the car’s HiPer Strut suspension system and a limited slip differential to stabilize the vehicle. However, we’re going to assume that number is closer to 270, or what we’re currently seeing out of the turbocharged 2.0L Ecotec in the Buick Regal GS. For more photos, visit Auto Express.
