Engine & Performance

The Vauxhall VXR8 houses a modern supercharged LSA V8. The engine delivers 576 horsepower and a torque of 545 lb-ft. The performance figures are expected to be released soon but expect something amazing since even then naturally aspirated VXR8 was clocked to go from 0 to 60 mph in just 4.9 seconds and a top speed of 155mph.

The new Vauxhall VXR8’s Eaton supercharger has 9 psi boot, 1.9 liters per revolution and 4 lobe rotors. This gives the VXR8 with much stronger and linear performance compared to its entire rev-range.

The front of the car features bold graphics and shallow-ramp angles that emphasize the stance and width. In order to deliver an aggressive look the focal point is a twin-nose grille which serves the purpose of enabling a large air intake that is needed for cooling the LSA V8.

At the rear, it has impressive LED tails lamps while the diffuser has quad-exhaust outlets with a shadow chrome finish.

Inside the cabin, design has been upgraded. With new instrument-cluster, centre console, gauges, door trims and appliqués all which combine to give the VXR8 a more premium feel and look.


The 2014 Vauxhall VXR8 has come of age. It has been designed with brilliant technology that has never been seen in this model. Some of the interesting things in this car include automatic park assist, rear park-assist, reversing camera, and side-blind zone alert with reverse-traffic alert and passive button push start.

The 2014 VXR8 has also a number of safety technologies for the driver’s convenience soon to be released.
