Vauxhall’s April prank mixes things up with the 2014 World Cup in Brazil. They have prepared the Vauxhall Astra Copacabana, an homage to Brazil and the city of Rio de Janeiro, featuring a Brazilian flag on the roof, and seats covered with original grass from the Maracana Stadium! And you have a choice of Samba or Vuvuzela tones for the horn.

Vauxhall Astra Copacabana:

With a Brazilian flag on its roof, palm trees and dancing lines along its doors, the all-new Astra Copacabana is the epitome of pure South American emotion.

Under the bonnet, its new 200PS 1.6 Turbo litre engine offers more drama than a penalty shoot-out, while acceleration from 0-60mph in just 2.6 seconds will press drivers into their seat-backs, which are upholstered from genuine Rio turf.

A masterpiece of craftsmanship, Vauxhall’s interior designers successfully processed original grass from the famous Maracanã Stadium. Every car comes with a certificate confirming the authenticity of the sacred greenery.

Just as authentic are the footwells, which are filled with finest sand from the beach that gave this football-themed model its name. And to make sure that you’re really living the dream when you drive the Copacabana, each special edition comes with a handy pair of flip-flops in the glove compartment.

With a choice of Samba or Vuvuzela tones, the Copacabana’s horn provides true stadium atmosphere, as does a beverage vending machine that mixes up ice-cold Caipirinhas during the drive – alcohol-free, of course, because the Cachaça goes directly into the tank as a power-boosting turbo-cocktail.

The Astra Copacabana is available today for just £41,024.01 from your nearest participating Vauxhall dealer.
