The New Vauxhall VXR8

The New Vauxhall VXR8

The new and upgraded VXR8 will have a brand spanking new engine and an incredible extra 150BHP, it’s a 6.2 litre supercharged LSA V8 engine, which can also be found in the new Chevrolet Camaro ZL1.

The VXR8 can reportedly do 0-62MPH in 4.1 seconds with a top speed of 180MPH, there is an option of a 6 speed auto gear box as well as the standard 6 speed manual gear box. One of the problems with the current VXR8 is that due to the power of the car it sometimes suffered with massive under steer, so underneath now there is a brand new ‘ Brake Torque Vectoring System’ which prevents the under steer. 

The rivals of the VXR8 would be the BMW M5 and Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG, but the VXR8 is already £18,000 cheaper than both of those cars. (Prices of the VXR8 starting at £54,999)  Although the performance and the quality of the VXR8 is still far behind the BMW M5 and the E63 AMG, hence the price.
