The Vectra VXR delivered supreme performance and explosive raw pace. Its 2.8 litre twin-scroll turbocharged V6 engine was a crossflow type – with intake ducts on one side of the combustion chambers and exhaust ducts on the other. The hatch catapulted from 0-60mph in 6.1 seconds with an impressive top speed of 155mph(restricted). Maximum power 280PS, maximum torque 355Nm. But the sophisticated suspension system glued the Vectra VXR to the road. Styling features included spoiler, large bumpers and a choice of 18-inch six-spoke alloys or 19-inch multi spoke alloys. Designed to stand out rather than blend in, the Vectra VXR grabbed the attention, sounded amazing and held its own against pure sports cars. And it brought a grin to your face.
