Vauxhall VXR8 GTS Makes Appearance At Goodwood Festival Of Speed: Video3
Nearly every notable performance machine currently on sale in Europe made an appearance at last weekend’s Goodwood Festival of Speed in Chichester, UK. Among them was the most powerful Vauxhall to ever exist, the Generation F Commodore-based 2014 VXR8 GTS.
At Goodwood, it’s hard to stand out. The car paddock is full of the world’s most prestigious supercars, and when those aren’t running, vintage Formula 1 or Group C touring cars are probably out on the track in their place. There is an awe-inspiring array of sheet metal for auto enthusiasts to pore over at the Festival of Speed, so if the VXR8 managed to turn a few heads, that’s a good sign.
General Motors made sure the car was hard to miss, though. It arrived in an eye-searing shade of bright orange and even if you looked past it as it pulled up to the start line, you definitely heard it once it got going. Seeing the VXR8 race up the hill at Goodwood just makes us wish Chevrolet would let its hair down a bit and make a similar performance spinoff of the SS sedan. At least they livened up the color palette for 2015 and if the current SS sells well, who knows what GM might have planned for the next-generation car.

I read that the widow of Tom Walkinshaw who started HSV, was at the festival to see her son drive (not Ryan Walkinshaw who took over HSV & Walkinshaw Performance). It said she drove a VXR8 GTS to the event.
