Bet that’s not hybrid… Of course it’s not. No, the Vauxhall VXR8 GTS-R is powered by a plain old supercharged 6.2-litre V8. It’s identical to the motor you’ll find in a Chevy Camaro ZL1, developing 587bhp and 545lb ft of torque. And not an electric motor in sight. Vauxhall claims it’s the fastest car it’s produced in its 114-year history. But that’s not right, Vauxhall didn’t produce this car at all… No, Holden did in Australia. Which brings us to a wider discussion point. Production of the Holden Commodore (this car’s name in its home nation) finishes this October.
