    I imagine the stats on your particular vxr are 0-30 in 5 seconds, top speed 60mph

    Believe the "stats" came from Aussie's car which had similar power spec but was stripped out when it was run (Whereas these VXR-R weren't)

    All jokes aside though, that ad is having a laugh. Some muppet will probably buy it though. There's a sucker born every minute.

    I'm still not buying 4.9 seconds. These cars are terrible off the line. Mods or not.

    Chances of getting a that good a launch every time will be slim to none.

    Got it in one Adam, because Thorney sold them as ‘limited edition’ (they did a VXR-S aswell if you remember and they did the same with the Corsa) people will pay more for them. When as previous said they are just black Vxr’s with some stickers on and the normal stage 3 mods. And the VXR-S was stage 2 I think

    I'd rather mod to stage 3 myself and have my own personal stamp on it.
