The VXR8 GTS was a monster. An Eaton supercharger, 6.2-litre V8 driving the rear wheels, nearly 600bhp and a soundtrack guaranteed to make your hair stand on end. At its heart was a supercharged LSA V8 which delivered 576bhp and 545lb ft of torque. And muscled its way from 0-60mph in just 4.2 seconds. Rapid.
The ‘twin-nostril’ grille, stylish fascia and 20-inch ‘blade’ forged alloys combined for a bold, aggressive look. Add in a shedload of technologies and the VXR8 GTS came ready to take on all challengers.
Maloo R8 LSA
The Vauxhall Maloo R8 LSA was an awesome pickup. Under the bonnet sat a 6.2-litre supercharged V8, with maximum power of 544PS and a jaw-dropping 671Nm of torque. It darted from 0-62mph in just 4.5 seconds and rushed to a top speed of 155mph.
A modified chassis helped cater for the massive power and torque. The unique rear suspension module delivered improved rear stiffness and rear braking efficiency. Aggressive exterior styling included a fascia incorporating a subtle splitter and pitch-black bonnet air vents.
