The Vauxhall VXR8 took over where the Monaro VXR left off. The biggest difference between the two cars is that the VXR8 has four doors whereas the Monaro is a 2-door coupe. Both cars are powered by the same 6.0-liter V8, but revisions to the engine have made it even more efficient in the VXR8.

In the Vauxhall VXR8 this unit develops 420 bhp @ 6000rpm and 406 lb-ft of torque @ 4400rpm. The power is sent to the rear wheels through a 6-speed manual gearbox, an automatic transmission is available at extra cost. Equipped with the manual transmission the VXR8 is able to hit 60 mph in just 4.9 seconds. Driver aids such as the stability system and traction control can be turned off at the flick of a switch.

The Vauxhall VXR8 features impressive 365mm front disc brakes that slow the car down from 60 mph to a standstill faster than a Lamborghini Murcielago or BMW M5.

Satellite navigation and 20-inch wheels are optional extras.
