Get prepared to say goodbye to an amazing car. Holden’s Commodore is no longer in production so there is no future for the Vauxhall VXR8. The carmaker has announced its last Vauxhall VXR8 special edition that will be full of character as anything else on the road.
It takes the first part of the Holden’s name to create the VXR8 GTS-R, offering a specification unique to the UK. The glorious 6.2-litre supercharged V8 is boosted by 19bhp to 587bhp; enough to make it the most powerful production Vauxhall ever, but still 49bhp short of the ultra-special ‘road-legal race car’ Oz-only Holden GTSR W1.
