    Default VxRacing numbers

    Hi guys, bought a VxRacing not too long ago, I love it it's quickish and looks fantastic. I've got a question about the numbers, am I right in thinking they made 888 racing corsas and 888 astras? Also I'm assuming these were all made in space of a few years, I couldn't go buy a new VxRacing 2018 model could I. Cheers

    Hi and welcome, you're confusing a couple of different things there - the 888 racing Corsa and Astra's were just examples tuned by 888 or as it was known then VX Performance Centre - this stopped many years ago when the BTCC partnership ended with Vauxhall. As far as I know no one bought new either of those cars, in effect they were just tuner specials, although admittedly the one aligned with Vauxhall at the time.
    THe VXRacing Editions are all listed here so you can check your number against it - http://www.vxronline.co.uk/forum/sho...ts-your-number
    Archive with details of spec here - http://www.vauxhall.co.uk/microapps/...ification.html

    Are you sure you have a Racing Edition as sometimes the dealer wrote VXRacing rather than VXR on the logbooks - not the same as the one's listed above

    Astra

    Thanks for your reply, I didn't know about the two 888 examples, I've just looked them up thanks for making that clear. I have a VxRacing I'm number 488, I'm still unclear how many were made, the list goes up to 880 so I'm assuming that's how many.

    444 made - they are all numbered even for the Corsa and the odd numbers are all Astra from between 1 to 888
