The Top Gear car review:Vauxhall VXR8
Running costs and reliability
On the one hand, the demands for servicing are low, and actually the V8 isn’t thirsty if you drive it on the considerable low-rev torque and change up early. But then, look at the insurance, look at the fuel bills if you cane it, look at the tyre costs if you go to oversteery track days. Bottom line: given the performance, it’s cheap to run, but given it’s a £55 grand saloon, it’s expensive.
