On sale now, the C2 VTS uses a 125bhp version of the 1.6-litre 16-valve petrol engine already found in the VTR and limited edition GT.
It will accelerate from 0-62mph in 8.3 seconds, has a top speed of 126mph and will be priced at £11,995 on the road.
The C2 VTS uses a conventional manual trans-mission – unlike the automated SensoDrive in the VTR – and offers fuel consumption of 40.9mpg on the combined cycle and carbon dioxide emissions of 163g/km.
The car is firmer and sportier than others in the C2 range and offers air conditioning and an electronic stability programme as standard.
Retail customers will also be able to take advantage of a year’s free insurance.
