Vauxhall Corsa celebrates 25 years since its launch

The Vauxhall Corsa is celebrating 25 years since its launch this year.

The subcompact vehicle was released amid considerable publicity back in 1993, when the likes of Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell, Christy Turlington and Linda Evangelista were hired to promote its launch.

The memorable ad - which is, in fact, said to be one of the highest rated of all time - featured Naomi in a very revealing outfit, while it concludes with Kate falling head-first off of a stage.

Denis Chick, the Director of Communications at Vauxhall Motors, believes that the Corsa has played an "integral part in British culture over the past 25 years".

He explained: "I think it'd be difficult to find someone who hasn't owned or had a friend or family member who has owned a model.

"Even more importantly for us at Vauxhall is how the vehicle has stayed relevant throughout that time and long may it continue to do so in the future."

In addition to the models, the iconic vehicle has also been promoted by a number of other famous faces.

Among the other well-known British fans of the Corsa over the years have been rapper Tinie Tempah, Olympic boxing gold medallist Nicola Adams and former 'Doctor Who' star Matt Smith.
