    Default Why no VXR Signum

    I think it would look cool, especially in red. Fat front lip, side skirts, colour-coordinated V grill, roof spoiler and some nice snowflakes.

    Why didn't Vaux make one, or have they and I've just made myself look an idiot?

    Nope, Vauxhall hasnt made a VXR Signum.....

    ..... So someone on here will have to make one instead !!

    Get one of those £12k brand new 2.8T Signums from Perry's and a £3500 conversion from 888 remap/turbo/FMIC to 340 BHP

    Sorted...

    Oh, and dont forget to budget another £5,000 for Eibach lowering kit, Bilsteins, 6 Pot AP Racing Brakes, Stainless Steel Exhaust & full Irmscher Interior including leather retrim

    Nope, as Spoons said they haven't done one. I never understood why, especially when they've done a Meriva VXR!!!

    A Signum VXRd up with all the extra bits and a power boost would look the absolute nuts IMO.

    The Signum was always aimed firmly at the Middle Manager / Junior Executive market. That's why we never saw a Signum SRi.

    As we all know Vx are dropping it anyway as it's not been the success they had hoped for. Plus residuals drop like a stone.

    I always like/liked the Signum, but I couldn't help thinking that Vx tried to make it something it wasn't. I don't think making a VXR version would help it to be honest. We already have the VXR estate and that fits the criteria.

    I agree with AJA. Don't think the market is there except for the nutter's on here....

    I see the way forward is soprty oil burners. Look at the new BMW 6 series, a 335d engine thats the fastest and most fuel efficent in the range. (Getting 36-38mpg and pushing more BHP than a F1!!! okay o.t.t)... I'd love to see an astra or vectra VXR with a bad boy diesel engine getting 200 bhp.

    My last RR figures were 202bhp & 304lbft and the car was absolutely flying.

    I'm running at standard at the moment now.

    I love our Signum (of course) and a kitted version would be great (in red - I'm having a red thing at the moment).

    Plus people don't really know the Signum, like the 350z last night who didn't want me to overtake him. I quickly showed him who the boss lady was

    as spoons has said you can by a signum 2.8 v6 turbo with no miles and with what is basically a vxr engine (250 bhp) i like this idea as its soooooooooo stealthy and not much will touch it, running costs are the major downside methinks
