    Talking Shelby GT500 no match for Monaro VXR 500!!

    full article here



    "In a bid to rid itself of its last 50 unsold Monaro VXRs, Vauxhall turned to specialist Monaro tuners Wortec. The VXR 500 features a new positive displacement supercharger, uprated fuelling and ignition systems and clutch revisions."

    "The conversion means the Corvette sourced 6.0-litre V8 now musters a true 493bhp and 499Ib/ft."

    What a beast, 500 bhp and 500 lb/ft of torque!!!

    The interior looks awful though, especially the steering wheel. But for £36k you can hardly go wrong!!! The VXR 500 is cheaper than the original 398bhp VXR - how did they do that!!!

    Ford should have checked out the Monaro VXR during the Shelby GT500’s development phase.

    They didn't need to pump them up to sell the last ones, just drop the price to 10k, I'd have bought one...

    'Perhaps they handed responsibility to a team member who’s a keen amateur rodeo rider out of office hours.'
