Vauxhall VXR8 Tourer

Vauxhall is a company with tradition in Britain. Since its foundation in 1903 it has continuously grown and it is now one of the UK’s biggest and most respected auto brands. Its plans are to introduce the new Vauxhall VXR8 Tourer in the United Kingdom.


The new Vauxhall VXR8 Tourer has at its origins the Holden VE Commodore.  It is the largest estate car regarding the load volume in Britain. It is designed for more than transporting the bags from a shopping session in the mall. It takes its power from a 6.2-liter V8 engine that is able to produce 431 HP (317 kW) and which is connected to a six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic transmission. This allows the vehicle to sprint from 0-60 mph in 4.9 seconds and reach an electronically limited maximum speed of 155 mph (250 km/h). These figures make it the fastest Vauxhall estate the company has ever produced.


Resembling its brothers, the Maloo pick-up and the GTS, the new Vauxhall VXR8 Tourer has an aggressive front bumper with black accents and LED daytime running lights. Parts of the aerodynamics are the ventilated front fenders, too.  The car sits on a set of 20 inch Pentagon alloy wheels and is equipped with a bi-modal exhaust system.


The interior of the new Vauxhall VXR8 Tourer looks more than ok. It has leather seats and alloy pedals. The car benefits of a good infotainment system that has Bluetooth/iPod/USB/AUX connectivity. The vehicle has an 895 litre(31.6 cubic feet) cargo volume which can be considerably increased when the rear seats are folded down, reaching 2,000 liters (70.6 cubic feet).


Vauxhall VXR8 Tourer’ s price starts from £49,500. The price includes a lifetime warranty that offers tranquility and safety to the first owners for as long as they keep the car for themselves.
