Profile

With a welcome power boost to nearly 200bhp, the new turbo-charged Vauxhall VX220 looks set to become the fastest accelerating 25k sportscar around.

The uprated 2.0 litre turbo unit from the Astra allows the VX220 to break the magical 5 seconds 0-60mph barrier and , perhaps more importantly, outrun all versions of it's nearest rival, the Lotus Elise. Handling is as before, excellent, but not quite up to the very highest standards of the Elise.

Looks remain faithful to the original but can be distinguished by a rear spoiler and larger new style alloy wheels. Lotus will again build the new model alongside it's own Elise.
