Thread: Vectra VXR Diesel (Round Two) Ding.....

    Default Vectra VXR Diesel (Round Two) Ding.....

    OK, I posted a while back stating that a Vauxhall salesman had 'reliably' told me that a Vauxhall Vectra VXR DIESEL was on the cards for release next year.

    It was then stated that "Mr VXR" at Vauxhall had categorically denied this and no VECTRA DIESEL VXR would be released...... at least not for some time until the new Vectra 'D' Model was released...

    Well, here is TODAY NEWS from AUTOEXPRESS (I know it starts with the Astra VXR, but read further.....) - What do you think?

    I've said it before and I'll say it again. The Auto Express is the car mag equivalent of the Beano. Anything in those pages should be taken with a pinch of salt....

    I know that...... but dont you think its coincidence then, that a Vauxhall chap told me the EXACT DETAILS, and then a month later it appears in AutoExpress....

    Come on..... I reckon its going to happen.....

    i would say that the twin turbo 1.9 will turn up in the new vectra
    and should be a nice one to go for or the 2.7 turbo cdti

    Nope. Not holding my breath. Astra maybe getting a diesel lump, but I'll bet good money it isn't the twin turbo as suggested.

    I'll believe it when I see it.

    The 'test mule' could be anything.

    It's probably an Astra 3.0V6 CDTI.

    Now that would be interesting!!!

    There has been photo`s of that deisel around for a while now, I reckon with VX supporting thurlby with the 888 as well they must be contemplating a diesel at some point. When though is the question ??

    To be honest it could just be testing of the CDTTi (twin turbo) engine for the new Antera
