The new Vauxhall Insignia GSi is the quickest production Vauxhall at the Nurburgring.
This all new Insignia GSi is 12 seconds faster than the previous VXR model.
Insignia GSi sits 10mm lower compared to the rest of the Insignia range and is 160 kg lighter than the previous Insignia VXR.
Power comes from a 2.0-litre turbo petrol engine paired to an eight-speed automatic gearbox. The Insignia GSi also comes with all-wheel drive with torque vectoring, mechatronic FlexRide chassis, Brembo four-cylinder brakes and Michelin Pilot Sport 4 S tyres wrapped around 20” alloys.
Drivers have a choice of four driving modes, Standard, Tour, Sport, and exclusive ‘Competition’.
“The lightweight architecture, excellent chassis configuration and unique all-wheel drive system, along with the performance tyres make the GSi as precise and sharp as we wanted it to be. The results speak for themselves, and the new Insignia GSi can lap the Nürburgring up to 12 seconds faster than its more powerful VXR predecessor. Where the course becomes more demanding and requires the car to react with more agility and precision, such as in the corners or stretches with low friction, the GSi is definitely faster and easy to control,”
said Volker Strycek, Vauxhall’s Director of Performance Cars and Motor Sport.
The new Insignia GSi will be available as a Grand Sport or Sports Tourer and is due in showrooms next year.
