Vauxhall launches game and Sport Hatch this week
Vauxhall Astra Sport HatchVauxhall is offering a chance to be among the first in Britain to drive the upcoming Astra VXR -- in a game that is. The company aims to bolster the appearance of the new 200bhp Astra Sport Hatch, which hits showrooms on Saturday. According to Vauxhall, the car is included in its ‘Million Mile Drive’ programme, a chance to take a three day test drive.
PHers might want to wait for the VXR though. The fastest Astra of the range, the VXR puts out 240bhp and 229lb-ft of torque from its turbocharged 2.0-litre four-pot mill, but isn't due until summer.
It's also because the VX Racing Astra Sport Hatch makes its debut in the first round of the 2005 British Touring Car Season, which gets under way on 9 April.
The game has seven levels and, said Vauxhall, allows you to race against friends or a computer-controlled rival on a choice of circuits, which all come complete with obstacles such as jumps, oil slicks, stray tyres and patches of sticky mud.
Racers can tackle seven tricky tracks in a VXR220 or Monaro VXR, and Vauxhall reckons they have handling and performance characteristics to match the dynamics and driving experience of the real production cars.
