    Vauxhall Astra GTE, Season 4 | Episode 8

    General Motors was a late entrant to the hot hatch market waiting until 1983 - but when it did turn up to the party, it did so with an amazingly effective weapon. The original Cavalier SRi-powered 115bhp car was just about perfect in every way - and easily a match for the all-conquering Golf GTI. Even in basic entry level form, the Astra was a great handling car, but when fitted with wide, low-profile tyres, lowered suspension and gifted the excellent 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 - to answer the only criticism of the launch cars, their too-high gearing. Yet, not long after, the Mk1 GTE made way for the aerodynamic Mk2 version. Not many Mk 1s survive now as they mostly fell victim to rust. The car also sold well in Europe where it was known as the Opel Kadett.
