    Default Daft question. . . . but?

    Is the Insignia 2.8t VXR limited?

    Just on the stats it states 155mph top speed & 325bhp. This makes it slower than the 280bhp Vectra VXR.

    Thought all Vecs were limited from the factory, though nothing to stop the owner adjusting this.

    Also, some of the insignia vxr's are delimited from the factory which is denoted by different colour brake callipers or something??? I know I've read something about it.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    It wouldnt make it "slower", the insignia vxr will get to 155mph quicker than the veccy vxr can! Realisticaly, where will you ever get to drive over 155mph anyway

    Im sure the vectra vxr's are not limited. Remember Top Gears feature on the veccy vxr? Clarkson went on about how it was the 3rd fastest (top speed) production saloon in the world at the time as all the big germans like the M5's, Merc AMG's etc were all limited to 155mph!

    Yep, sure it was a something like a £500 premium to have the limiter removed
