Vauxhall VXR8 Review [video]
VXR8 is powered by a 6.2 liter LS3 engine with 431PS (317 kW) and 550Nm (406 lb-ft). The engine is mated to either 6-speed manual or 6-speed automatic gearbox. All power is send to the LSD at the rear wheels, which means that the sports sedan is a real fun making machine.
The performance is more than satisfying – 0 to 60 mph in 4.9 seconds and top speed is sends all that power to the LSD at rear wheels. 0 to 60mph is in 4.9 seconds and the top speed is electronically limited to 155MPH (250 km/h), eventually the car will make almost 300 km/h.
The suspension of the performance sedan consists of MacPherson struts and progressive rate coil springs for the front with a multi-link independent support at the back. Vauxhall VXR8 also has MRC (Magnetic Ride Control).
The exterior boasts a Shockwave grille, LED daylights, wing-vents, a rear spoiler, LED tail lights and a dual exhaust tips.
Inside, you will find a full leather upholstery, HSV sport seats and an EDI system, which is on-board computer that streams performance data to the 5″ monitor.
All this luxury and performance comes to you for just £49 500. Perfect value for money!
