Vauxhall VXR Red Victor 3

At the VXR Power Festival held at Silverstone Circuit in Northamptonshire in August, the fastest Vauxhall in the world will show it face. Thanks to an 8.8-liter twin-turbocharged GM V8 engine capable of developing 3.000 horsepower the fastest Vauxhall in the world is still street legal. The team is predicting a top speed that will begin with 240 mph in the quarter mile which it should achieve in 6.5 seconds. Actually there is no reason whatsoever to doubt them as Red Victor 2, their last project, was capable of almost 200 mph in the quarter-mile and it was capable of reaching 153 mph in 4.8 seconds. The VXR Power Events of Vauxhall reaches its zenith with the two-day Power Festival at Silverstone this Bank Holiday. A lot of people are expected to be present at the event which aims to raise further funds for H4H through high-octane activities like 0-60 challenges, auto-testing, karting and VXR track tuition with pro-drivers. The ones that just want to stand back and watch the action should not miss the Prro-Am Pursuit which famous racing drivers from Vauxhall take on celebrities. If you want more, there is no problem as Paul Swift will be there to perform different incredible stunts in a Vauxhall road car. The price of the tickets will cost only GBP 10 for adults and children under five years old can enter for free. This way, the entire family can enjoy without leaving a big whole in the bank account. The on-site challenges cost just somewhere between GBP5 and GBP 10. All money will be sent to the most worthy causes in the UK.
