    Default Mixed driving results

    Hi, anyone know what the highest performance version of the current Scenic is, because my Vectra (150 CDTI SRi) was well and truelly out accelerated by one this morning on the M2! That is the bad, the good is later on the same journey, once in Belfast, I totally blew away a Vectra VXR! I was off and moving while his front wheels were uselessly failing to get any grip on the damp road. He looked ****ed once he got going and passed me. Before anyone comments about boy racing, I was just moving off normally. It was the VXR who tried a fast take off when the slippy road would not let him . Do Vectra VXRs not have TC?

    No it was not a dream! It was a nice looking car. The first time I have really noticed a Vectra VXR. It was a light/mid metallic blue. I also noticed he had a very hot looking red head in his passenger seat!

    Not trying to claim my car is faster. He must have just planted his foot down so hard that the wheels just could not get traction on the wet road. Once he was moving, he was past me quickly enough! If it was not a real VXR, it was a very convincing conversion.

    2.0 litre DCI 160 looks to be the fastest in the range.

    There is also a 2.0 VVTi (Petrol). Probably develops about 150 (ish)
