New model celebrates soccer champs

VAUXHALL has launched the Vectra Premier to celebrate its sponsorship of the Euro '96 football championships. The £13,500 car marks a hat-trick of football-themed limited editions for Vauxhall, joining the Corsa Premier and Astra Premier which were introduced earlier in the spring.

Based on the Vectra 1.6 Envoy, the Vectra Premier adds eight more valves in the form of the 100 PS 1.6 16v ECOTEC-4 engine, air conditioning, tinted glass, rev counter, three rear headrests, electric windows and Euro '96 badging.

The additional specification is worth £2,030, but the car costs an additional £1,250, which is the equivalent of getting air conditioning free. The car is available as both a four-door and five-door. Vauxhall expects to sell 6,000 Vectra Premiers this year, or almost 5% of 1996 Vectra production.
