Hardly surprised it won but what a terrible start! It would have finished almost last if the race had been to the 1/4 mile, so if you're sticking to legal speeds you're going to get beaten by an awful lot of cars, I suppose you can console yourself with knowing if you had another 1/4 mile you would have got them but that won't wipe the smile of the other guy's face!

Having said all that, I was a passenger on a test drive in a VXR8 on Saturday courtesy of Inchcape, I was more than impressed, the car is ridiculously quick, handles fantastically and has eye popping braking performance, not to mention how damn good it looks! 8)

It really was in a different league to anything FWD, I was impressed by way it is so stable on the road, planted is a word that came to mind, the back is also very stable under hard acceleration with no sign of it about to step out on you.

So, the question is, do I buy one!!!??? :shock: :D :D

I read a 0-100-0 test in a magazine recently,can`t remeber which one, think it was aoutcar as well, anyhoo the vxr8 didn`t get a great review and it wasn`t that quick, iirc the corsa vxr wasn`t far behid it !!
