Chevrolet Cruze Irmscher Edition – Click above for high-res image gallery

Fair is fair. If North American buyers will have the option of equipping their Chevrolet Cruze with the RS sports package – unveiled just a couple of weeks ago at the New York Auto Show – when it finally comes home to roost, don't the Europeans deserve a little something to? After all, they've had the Cruze on the market there for a while. So to keep them interested, General Motors' European operations have teamed up with tuning house Irmscher for a sporty little number of their own.

Irmscher has fitted the Cruze with a 25-mm lowered suspension, a rear spoiler and a set of nifty looking 18-inch turbine-style alloys. But the real news is the car's freer-flowing exhaust system that gives the 2.0-liter turbodiesel engine a 36-horsepower boost to bring output up to 186hp and the 0-62 mph sprint down to eight seconds flat.

Best of all – for German customers, at least – the Cruze Irmscher Edition can be ordered directly from their Chevrolet dealers. The package was unveiled at the AMI show in Leipzig, Germany.
