    Default 2.8Elite V's VXR

    Has anybody driven both the 2.8l engined Vectras?
    I love the thought of all that power however I prefer the understated - almost Q car - looks of the Elite (and the extra toys etc)
    How different are they to drive?
    Now I'm no rally driver - but I do love fast 0-100 sprints - for example joining a motorway - and getting away from the nova boys at the traffic lights. I know the Elite engine is some 30bhp down on the VXR but the 0-60times given by Vauxhall only diver by 10ths of a second.
    What are they like to drive and will the lower output engine put a smile on my face?
    Thanks

    I have not driven the VXR but I have the 2.8T Elite, its quick and it puts a smile on my face when I join the motorway, I have not yet put my foot to the floor as I end up going way above the legal limit without trying, I have found myself doing over 100MPH on a lonley motorway with ease.

    As I have only done 3900 miles as yet I have not really tried to boot it but i will take it to one of the meets at Santa Pod and try it out over the 1/4 mile.

    I find I can keep up with most BMWs and most Mercs and a DB9 until I decided to back out as I was going a bit quick for a motorway during the day and I value my licence to much.

    I am doing very mixed driving at the moment and have averaged exactly what the Vauxhall estimaes are 25.9 so all in all I am very happy with it.
