Vauxhall VXR8 GTS

Vauxhall Motors is a British automotive manufacturing and distribution company headquartered in Luton, Bedfordshire, and a subsidiary of the German Adam Opel AG, itself a wholly owned subsidiary of the American General Motors . The company sells passenger cars, luxury vehicles, and light commercial vehicles under the Vauxhall marquee. Vauxhall has been the second-largest-selling car brand in the UK for over two decades. VXR is the Vauxhall lineup that is made of high-performance versions of some of the brand’s models. This includes the Vauxhall VXR8 GTS.

The Vauxhall VXR8 GTS is powered by a 6.2 liter LSA supercharged V8 engine that generates 576HP (426 kW) and 739Nm (545 lb-ft) of torque. This means 150HP and 190Nm more than the previous VXR8 which sprints the 0-100 km/h in 4.2 seconds and reaches an electronically limited top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph). This is the most powerful production car ever made in Australia. The UK market will sell the vehicle at £54,999.

The Vauxhall VXR8 GTS is equipped with a Brake-Torque Vectoring system that provides braking force to the inside rear wheel and then transfers torque to the outside rear wheel in order improve handling during high-speed manoeuvres. It also has a Magnetic Ride Control with three independent settings. Usually the Vauxhall vehicles make a good impression on the public. Considering that this one is more powerful and more good looking, it will certainly have the same success.
