Vauxhall has launched a new performance brand, VXR, inspired by the manufacturer’s success in the British Touring Car Championship with their VX Racing team.

The VX220 and Monaro will be first to receive the VXR treatment, which will include internal and external styling modifications, as well as performance and handling enhancements.

Other key Vauxhall models will receive a dash of VXR in the future, although the car maker is currently keeping the details to itself.
