VXR8 GTS DEBUT
The ultimate VXR8 hits Autosport
We’ve shown you pictures of the new VXR8 GTS before, but the car will actually have debuted at the Autosport Show by the time you read this. It’s a fitting setting to unveil a car like this, a hulking, massively powerful brute that really doesn’t fit within the rest of the modern Vauxhall range.
The bad news is that the new car isn’t as cheap as it once was, and though £55,000 for 576bhp is still a good deal, it isn’t in the same bargain-league as the Monaro. That money gets you a more sophisticated car though, a fantastic supercharged V8, a 4.2 second 0-60, some very clever diffs and suspension, and fantastic bragging rights down the pub. Just a shame this may be one of the last beefy V8 Vauxhalls we get with news that Holden is to close.
