Vauxhall VXR8 GTS Reviews
Total Aggregate Score
5 / 5
This VXR8 GTS is a magnificent piece of work, and a fine example of the way a rear-wheel drive muscle car should be.
9 / 10
The VXR8 also has an honest charm about it and is surprisingly comfortable when driven with restraint. The design may not be to all tastes and it can look brash in certain colours, but as an overall package it is near impossible to find fault.
4.5 / 5
A rebellious streak is needed to buy one, but not to enjoy it. A class act and a singular joy.
3.5 / 5
If you’re after a subtle and low-key performance car, then look away now. If you want a rough and ready, stand-out brute, then the Vauxhall VXR8 will be right up your street.
3 / 5
The VXR8’s automatic transmission isn’t the last word in hi-tech engineering, but it’s smooth enough and works well when used in combination with the paddleshifters.
2.7 / 5
With bold looks to match its muscle-car personality, the Vauxhall VXR8 is as raw as modern high-performance saloons get.
