    Not confirmed... but yes, I would imaging so.. The 2007 touring cars will be Vectra's and 888 have already said that a new wave of upgraded parts will be available for the Vectra during 2007.

    Suspension, brakes, Anti-Roll Bars, Engine Upgrades.... you name it...

    Personally I think it would be better if a Vauxhall approved Vectra 888 came out on similar lines of the original Astra Coupe 888.

    This would make more sense from an insurance point of view as the original 888 was a 'standard car' and the V5 stated 888

    The new CDTi 888's although a brilliant car, will always be modified SRi's.

    Lets hope the Vectra does well in the BTCC then a 888 could be on the cards.

    It's a one off for now, it is not a recognised '888' model.

    I disagree as it's official title is a Thurlby 888 Astra, just because it doesn't have it on the V5 document, doesn't mean any different. The original 888 coupe was more looks, where the new 888 is more about the go IMO anyway Though in the 888 CDTi Recaro's and retrim should of been standard

    I love mine to bits

    Vauxhall Vectra VXR 888

    Our verdict on a special turbo tuned Vectra VXR 888
    Text: Owen Mildenhall / Photos: David Shepherd November 2006

    No, your eyes are not deceiving you – this is the world’s fastest Vauxhall. What’s more, it’s a near- standard Vectra VXR that’s expected to be offered through selected dealers towards the end of this year.


    Capable of 186mph, it’s been built by German tuning legend EDS as part of a project involving race car firm 888.

    Capable of 186mph, it’s been built by German tuning legend EDS as part of a project involving race car firm 888. With 252bhp and 355Nm of torque, the stan-dard motor is already potent. But for those who want supercar performance, EDS has fitted a new turbocharger, worked its magic on the ECU, and modified the ex-haust to generate 340bhp and 500Nm.

    Auto Express jumped at the chance to get an exclusive first drive in EDS’s development test car, and the performance differences are easy to spot. The car is noticeably more urgent, and you can really feel the surge in thrust as the turbo comes on boost. But it’s the acceleration in gear which is really impressive – particularly in fifth and sixth, where the ability to overtake or increase speed without changing down separates this model from a standard VXR.

    However, away from the test track putting this much power through the front wheels asks a lot of the transmission and traction control. And with this in mind, EDS has programmed the standard VXR’s Sport button to be an on/off switch for the extra performance.

    The tuned parts can be retro-fitted to an existing VXR, or ordered complete with a new car. Either way, the result will be most unlike your average Vectra.
