    Default How about VXR8

    Article taken from AutoExpress today

    Whats the performance car badge to watch out for in 2007?

    That'll be VXR8. While Vauxhall is yet to officially announce the name of its new V8-Powered sports model, AutoExpress has learned that the firms replacement for the Monaro Coupe will be called the VXR8.

    Driven in Holden Commodore SS V guise in Issue 942, the new model will be a modified version of the Australian saloon.

    The VXR8 will produce around 400 BHP in entry level form, with tuned variants offering even more power. On sale in the summer, the four-door is expected to cost from around £35k

    It's just you!

    I see what you mean - more around the headlights area - but other than that I'd say it's somewhat different.

    i think you're looking too hard Steve! you can't see much from the A pillar back on the Holden.

    and as for the nosejob comment, what do you think the current Vec C's are?!!?

    I can see where you're coming from, but the Holden's more like an Omega in size.
