Vauxhall VXR8 V8 news - Cor' blimey - 2008

Read more on:

The Vauxhall VXR8 isn’t the latest word in
sophistication, which makes it ideal for the more powerful engine it’s rumoured
to be getting.

The new lump will come straight from the
Corvette ZO6 - again, not the last word in refinement - and we’re talking some
serious figures here.

How does 7.0 litres grab you? Probably
quite roughly, in all honestly, especially if it puts out the unconfirmed
570bhp and 472lb ft.

Vauxhall is keeping very tight-lipped at
the moment, but we understand that it is being looked at and might even appear
this year.

Just in time for winter, with all the
associated ice and rain that 570bhp and rear-wheel drive are so ideal for
coping with.
