Vauxhall have announced that they are to scrap the Insignia Country Tourer model from their vehicle range in the United Kingdom whereas other countries will still have the model on sale. The car first started sales alongside the Sports Insignia and the Standard model as it arrived on the road two years ago but sales never really took off for this particular model. The brand announced this week that the Country Tourer version would no longer be sold here in Britain as the new engine fitting called the 'Whisper' coming along with the new model would cost too much financially to include with the car especially considering sales on the car are not great here in the United Kingdom. Vauxhall will make this change immediately but the units still available in showrooms will remain there until sold but no more will be produced by the manufacturer themselves.
Volkswagen cut the Phaeton from their line up
Vauxhall have not been the only car firm making headlines for the scrapping of their vehicles in the United Kingdom. The Volkswagen group are another firm who have done much of the same. The brand have confirmed that no longer will they sell their Phaeton model here in the United Kingdom as the car has been dropped from their British line up due to the fact that the cars engine range is now not Euro 6 compliant. It would not be viable for the brand to offer these new engines in the car range as sales have also been so low with only thirty one units being sold in the UK last year alone. The Phaeton has also been dropped from the companies line up in the market in the United States too.
The Lotus 3-Eleven sets its sights on Goodwood
The Goodwood festival of speed. It is a place where the quickest and most powerful vehicles go every year to make their grand debut to the public and this years big event is set to be no different. Sports car manufacturer Lotus will be making their presence felt on this years event by revealing their all new 3-Eleven track based sports car which will be heavily based on their former 2-Eleven model from 2007. This is not a car that will be making its way to public roads in the future and as you may have guessed from the track car title, will only be legal on the track. There is no denying the power that this car is set to give out as has been demonstrated by its seven minute lap time around the Nurburgring testing facility. The brand new car will boast a V6 sized, 3.5 litre engine and is capable of putting out 420 brake horse power. The new 3-Eleven is expected to go on sale this year shortly after its reveal at the Goodwood festival of speed and a price area of around £70,000 is expected to come along with the new track car.
