Vauxhall wants to shed inventory of its old Astra bodystyle and it's using the go-to tactic of a limited special edition to do it. There will be just 500 VXR Arctic Editions will get your polar needles spinning, and the extras above and beyond the VXR trim includes a black roof, mirror housings, window tints and fascia pieces, heated leather Recaros and 19-inch alloys.
The 240-horsepower VXR Arctic starts at £23,595 ($36,019 U.S.), which is £720 ($1,099 U.S.) more than a basic VXR, but throws in another £1,245 ($1,900) in free goodies. If you still don't think you've spent enough, you can always add the panoramic roof for another £920 ($1,404). They're on sale now, and sure to be going... from 0-to-60 in 6.2 seconds...
