The new VXR8 Tourer from Vauxhall is the wagon that the Pontiac G8 Sportwagon could have been. The Tourer is the largest “estate” (English term for wagon) available for sale in the UK, due to the abundance of cargo space. Under the bonnet, you’ll find one of our personal favorite combinations – A 426hp LS3 V8, and a 6-speed manual transmission. There’s also an automatic available, but where’s the fun in that?
Some extra go-fast parts include: launch control, a dual-mode exhaust system, big Brembo brakes, and fancy wheels. In order to monitor all of that fun stuff, there’s a system called EDI (Enhanced Driver Interface) that will tell you the G-forces, power figures, and even the degree of sliding achieved in a casual drift session.
So what’s the catch? This bad boy will run you 49,500 Pounds, which equates to something near $75,700 USD. Is it worth it? Let us know in the comments.
