      Now We Wait.......

      We wait to see what the new VXR will have to offer!

      I now predict it'll have 250bhp. VX will then release a special edition version with 300bhp!

          Gotta be if it has any chance of contending with the newer hot hatches on the market

            As nice as it looks, the price is a bit laughable really considering it's bang up against the Megane 250 at that price. And what do you get over a standard VXR????

            As for the new VXR, that will be interesting and I can well believe it will have 300bhp. Just 21bhp shy of the Insignia, so similar the Astra and Vec when they were first launched..

              Astons are doing them for £17997 iirc - so the RRP might not be good but the actual price is still good

              Astra

                  Where have you been - it's 100% not 4wd, that's a fact from the horses mouth already

                  Astra

                      Wonder if it will be fully forged like the vec then, tuning would be cheaper that way

                        Nothing vauxhall will bring out next yr or when ever its meant to be out will be as good as its rivals, they were the big boys when they made the vxr range but its old and as said in the read there are much better cars out there now, vx have nothing new to bring to the table, its a shame really

                          Pictures of the concept new 3 door out before September. And it'll have an engine worthy of the VXR name....if you look on the net you'll find it in a car already, though that car is only on the track.

                          Are there better cars out there , well of course there are now , but when our new car arrives it'll go to the top of the pile in a more refined way than the old car ever did. Its called a vehicle lifecycle and the current Astra is at its end , I'll wager the new VXR vs the new ST will be an interesting battle.

                              That review is as expected, all they're doing is reviewing a car they've driven before but that's now older than it's rivals. Aside from the white paint and black bits that I don't think enhance the look of the car in any way. It's the same car it's always been.
