2011 Vauxhall Astra’s 300bhp HotHatch -Spied at the #Nurburgring

Today our spy spotted the 2011-12 Vauxhall Astra GTC testing on the Northloop at the Nürburgring.

The next-gen Astra VXR/GTC speculation suggests that the 2011 Astra coupe in vxr/opc spec will use a 300-horsepower engine, aiming its targets at the Renault Megane 250 cup and the mighty Focus RS from Ford.

One thing it looks like they have moved the rear exhaust from the center and adopted for a uglier exhaust system, but this could also be part of the mule guise.

Keep your eyes open for the model to start it’s strip tease towards the release at Paris or Frankfurt later on this year.
