                  Well I hope the turbo in the next Astra VXR is better quality than the current one!!

                  Oh and more than 250bhp would be better too!

                      was expecting something about 260 bhp plus...
                      but wasnt expecting 4x4... great

                          does anyone have the official spec on next generation vxr ?

                          i heard 4x4 1.8T

                          not sure about bhp though

                            I'd be amazed considering the current state of GM's finances that they would invest that much money in a 4x4 version!

                            plus it would be heavier with much higher transmission losses so would need at least 300hp to put it on a par with the current VXR just seems unlikely to me. If anything I would expect a 300hp FWD version with a new chassis to lay the power down better something similar in nature to Fords RevoKnuckle.

                              I would be amazed if 4wd was true look at all the hype expecting the Focus RS having 4wd which didnt happen .

                              Will more likely have the same kind of magnetic dynamic suspension as seen in the new Caddillac CTSV
