    Default One quick Vectra! But what was it??

    On the M4 this morning and had a silver 06 Vec C up my chuff in the outside lane. I couldn't let my super duper $hitron Picasso TD hire car rip, as had a car in front of me.

    Finally it moved out the way and i clogged it, doing a fair old lick. Obviously can't reveal the speed , but i wasn't hanging round and this C is still up my exhaust. So pulled over into the middle lane and this thing just effing took off past me as if i was parked with the handbrake on!

    As it passed me at warp factor speed, i clocked the badges on the right rear and they were V6 Turbo. Was this the 3.0 V6 Turbo Diesel??

    If so, i'm highly, highly impressed!

    If it was an '06' then it would have been the 230ps 2.8 V6 turbo.

    De-tuned? 230ps?

    And some people say that the Vec VXR ain't all that?

    If a de-tuned 230ps one goes like that then i want a VXR NOW!!!!
