    Just watching the Top Gear episode when Clarkson drives the Veccy VXR for the first time and was quite surprised at his comment about it. "This car is, begins with S and ends with T, and it's not soot"

    Think he needs a or a ??

    that would be RAF coningsby. its were the battle of britain memorial flight is based and the eurofighter training squadron as well, you can go on the tour and see the spitfires, hurricanes, dakota and the lancaster, the eurofighters take off from there about every 5 minutes and make a hell of a racket, also take of in a shorter distance than i thought, so there was a lot of missed photos opportunities that day


    as for JC so what he doesnt like vauxhalls, i wasnt too keen on them before i got the veccy.
    dont forget it was a vx that made him eat his own hair

    The way they made the VXR understeer round that corner? Rubbish. Turn off the traction control and foot down most front wheel drive cars would do that. All of it a fix.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    Evo Mag gave it a decent write up. In fact I think they've got a long termer VXR estate now. Who would you believe?

    Your right. ITS A FIX.

    I remember that, wasn't it up against a scooby and a BMW. I think they were very happy with it and it beat the beemer in the twisties I think.
