Special edition electric Vauxhall has socks appeal

Tom Barnard


Vauxhall has revealed the new Corsa-e Anniversary Edition to celebrate 40 years of Vauxhall superminis, and among the special features is a pack of socks. 

The Corsa-e Anniversary Edition includes a range of styling updates inspired by Vauxhall’s heritage, with the first Corsa (badged Nova in the UK) having been unveiled 40 years ago in 1982. 

The Anniversary Edition is available exclusively in a new ‘Record Red’ metallic paint finish, inspired by the ‘Carmine Red’ from the original Nova, and comes with further exterior and interior upgrades. The fully electric model is limited to just 1,000 numbered units in the UK.

A black grille with black front and rear Vauxhall Griffin badges is included on all Anniversary Edition models, alongside black ‘Corsa’ lettering at the rear – which is prominently centred across the rear tailgate, as first seen on New Grandland and All-New Astra – and 17-inch alloy wheels in gloss black, with matt grey inserts. 

Inside, the Anniversary Edition features a modern interpretation of the classic Nova’s tartan seat fabric. The chequered front sports seats are accompanied by a presentation box with four pairs of socks that are inspired by the pattern found in the original 1980s Nova SR and the one found in the Corsa-e Anniversary Edition. Each pattern comes in both small and large sizes. 

Based on the GS Line version, the Anniversary Edition costs an extra £2,445 at a price of £31,000, and will only be available to order directly from the Vauxhall website.
