Vauxhall VXR8 Maloo Enlisted To Transport The Brand’s First Vehicle2
Vauxhall needs to make its way to the Goodwood Festival of Speed somehow. Thankfully, the fine blokes at Holden Special Vehicles have offered up the HSV Maloo R8 for Vauxhall, thus creating the Vauxhall VXR8 Maloo LSA.
While we doubt many VXR8 Maloo LSAs will be sold in the UK, Vauxhall is putting the ute to work. The VXR8 Maloo will be transporting Vauxhall’s very first vehicle produced: the 1903 5HP. With the ability to handle up to 1,100-pounds, the VXR8 Maloo will have no issues playing carrier for the 600-pound 5HP.
The VXR8 Maloo and 1903 5HP are only two of the many Vauxhalls heading to the 2016 Goodwood Festival of Speed, in which the brand returns as a headlining sponsor for the second year in a row. Be sure to catch the brand at Goodwood between June 23-26.

So envious of the countries that have these vehicles!
Makes you wonder whether Chevy could make something like the Vauxhall VXR8 Maloo using the Camaro as a starting point.
