2005 version of the Monaro VXR featured more power and torque
than any other production car from Vauxhall.
Under the Monaro VXR's ventilated bonnet sits the new high-output
6.0-litre LS2 V8 engine, as used in the Corvette
C6. The engine develops 397 horsepower and 530Nm of torque.
This gives the Monaro VXR a 0-60 mph time of around 5 seconds
and a 180 mph top speed.
Along with the new engine, virtually the entire drivetrain has
been upgraded on the 2005 Monaro VXR, with revised suspension
and bigger grooved brakes to ensure that the car can keep the
power tamed while still being thrilling to drive. With its classic
front-engine, rear-wheel drive layout, the Monaro VXR rapidly
gained a reputation for being an enthusiastic driverís car.
The Vauxhall Monaro VXR was replaced by the Vauxhall
VXR8 saloon in 2008.
