Body & Paintwork

The Mk5 Astra VXR is certainly a very eye catching car, this example especially so, sporting superb & original Arden Blue paintwork, along with the unmarked optional 19″ alloy wheels & blue brake calipers.

This example is as striking as ever, looking absolutely superb.
The wheels are in unmarked condition, still with original tyres (we would of course advise the tyres are changed for road usage).
All lights and foglights which are usually victim to stone chips/gravel rashing are in superb condition – this VXR is in great order, indeed the best we have seen.

The brake calipers are still original in finish, being the blue & even the disc centres present well without the usual corrosion.

The paintwork itself present very well, with zero damage & only a few very small stone chips but this is being very critical.

A truly lovely example, of a fantastic hot hatch

Interior & Trim

As you would fully expect, the interior is in truly superb condition throughout.

The half leather seats are in lovely order, they present very nicely indeed & support you very well when driving.

A common issue on a Mk5 Astra is the lack of working air conditioning, but this example works as it should do.
All electrics work correctly, with all switchgear presenting well.

Everything works exactly as it should do, the steering wheel, gear knob & pedal rubbers are all in incredible condition, all piano black trim presents nicely & the original VXR floormats are still in place.

Engine

The famous ‘hooligan’ Astra VXR saw the Z20LEH engine come around with a claimed output of 240bhp which gives great performance in such a light hot hatch.
Not only that, but the fantastic gear ratios mean the VXR could often compete with higher power vehicles to the surprise of many.

Being a cherished one owner vehicle, the has had only little usage over the years, car has had regular servicing, and as such it runs perfectly as of course you would expect.
This car has clearly not had a hard life & is original throughout.

The engine bay itself presents very nicely as can be seen.

This is a fantastic car to drive, with surprising performance, along with a great soundtrack.

Running Gear

As with the rest of the car, all running gear is in great order.

The car drives fantastically & wants for nothing.
