Vauxhall has updated the performance-focused Insignia VXR and given it a new name. The Insignia VXR SuperSport has a top speed of 170mph – 15mph faster than the old model – but now costs £3,760 less.

That brings the price down to £29,995. Vauxhall claims the SuperSport is the fastest and most powerful car on sale in the UK for less than £30,000. Power comes from the same 321bhp 2.8-litre turbocharged V6 engine as the old VXR, but Vauxhall has removed an electronic limiter to boost the top speed. As with the outgoing car, acceleration from 0-62mph takes 5.6 seconds.

The Insignia VXR has four-wheel drive and a special suspension set up to improve grip. Vauxhall's ‘FlexRide’ system also features, allowing drivers to alter how firm the suspension is.

Styling changes are few and far between, but you’ll be able to spot a SuperSport by the blue Brembo logo on the brake calipers and some extra increments on the speedometer.

Buyers can order the Insignia VXR SuperSport now, complete with Vauxhall's ‘Lifetime Warranty’ which covers the first owner parts for 100,000 miles.
