Vauxhall was a late entrant to the hot-hatch market, but when it finally arrived, it headed straight to the head of the pile. The Astra was always a great handling car, but when fitted with wide, low-profile tyres and the excellent 115bhp 1.8-litre ‘Family Two’ engine, it was transformed into a flying machine. The GTE arrived in 1983, and within a few months received a close-ratio gearbox – and a few short months later, it made way for the aerodynamic Mk2 version. Not many survive now, and rust claimed many – unsurprisingly, values are ahead of the newer car.
