FORGET CO2 emissions and company car tax for a second.
If you want pounds per performance as your next business car, then take a look at this: the Vauxhall Insignia VXR SuperSport.
Vauxhall has always been good at producing super saloons – remember the brilliant Lotus Carlton? – and the new VXR SuperSport continues the tradition.
It races to a top speed of 170mph – faster than its predecessor – and yet costs £4k less at £29,995
Vauxhall says it’s the best performance car for under £30k – better than the BMW M135i that we’ve just reviewed – see BMW M135i: wolf in sheep’s clothing.
At the heart of it all is Vauxhall’s 2.8-litre V6 Turbo ECOTEC engine producing 325PS, thanks to a single twin-scroll turbocharger and variable valve control for quick throttle response.
If you use all that power – it does have all-wheel drive by the way – you’ll need a neck brace: 0-60mph whizzes past in 5.6 seconds.
Like all new Vauxhall passenger cars, the Insignia VXR SuperSport comes with Lifetime Warranty.
