    Arrow The NEW - NEW VXR - good, Bad, Ugly?

    Hi Foks,
    Was a browsing for porn and such today and found this:

    http://www.autoexpress.co.uk/news/au...ll_vectra.html

    Not sure if it needs a vote, but is it a bigga astra? or just me...

    Like the idea of a Quattro type gearbox, i'll replace all 4 tyres after 10k miles instead of just 2!

    Biddyy,

    Well Auto Express' photoshops are never renowned for being awfully accurate.

    As for the car, we won't see the VXR version until late 2009, but on paper it sounds great! 300bhp through four wheels would be great, as long as the transmissions aren't fragile. Slap a remap in it and you could probably see close to 350bhp.

    I really like it, the only thing that bothers me is the rear bumper doesnt come lower than the exhaust tips.

    Well, it would mean we could emulate the great Gene Genie and yell "Let's fire up the Quattro!"....

    Engine : Flux Core Capacitor

    Year : 1 A.D

    Mileage : Rising

    If Vx "Think" that they'll make a car anywhere near as good as the Audi Quattro ( looks like they're trying to take on the RS4 badging it a VXR) then i'm very sorry Mr.Vx, your living on another planet !

    IT AIN'T GUNNA HAPPEN.

    NO F'IN CHANCE !!!!!!!!!!


    Have consideration for the deaf, if you're gunna fart, make it smell !

    To be fair, know one will make a car like the original Audi Quattro, not even Audi, Audi cars are not as good as they make out.

    The pictures in the this AutoExpress feature are terrible photoshops. The VXR is expected to have OVER 300bhp when launched.
