  • When can I see a VXR8 and some questions

    Saw the VXR8 for the first time last Sunday on Top Gear and even after JC said he liked it I still was interested In fact not a day has gone by since that I've not been on the web diggin around for more information.

    By way of background I'm coming from a Porsche Cayman S which I've had for around 8 months but frankly it's just not doing it for me (Scoobies and Evo prior to it). I think I'm a sports saloon sort of person rather than great refinement.

    So, a couple fo questions - when/where can I see one in the flesh and get my backside sat in one, I'd rather see one before pre-ordering although I might be tempted not to. This next question might be a little more odd but I wondered about a tow bar option, I see the Holden/HSV site lists it as capable of towing 1600kgs so presume they offer a tow bar option, any chance for the UK or would I personal import something (warranty issues?) - not towing a lot and not very often but would be handy (race car not a caravan in case people wondered).

    Are all the exterior colours coming to the UK - the Evoke dark silver metallic looks good to me (get some anthracite rims on it and I'd be in heaven I reckon).

    Can't think of anything else, I'm hooked though...

        We had Tom Walkinshaws personal HSV 370 on site for the afternoon, it is awesome!!! If you call Walkinshow Devlopments you may get an oppourtunity to have a bum on the seat moment. You may have to travel and ask real nice.

              Walkinshaw have done a HSV 370 check here

              I think the owner requested the colour-Lambo green from memory
              with matching green leather interior!

                To see one, you can always go to BTCC. VXR have a display up there with the VXR8. You won't get in it, but at least you can see it up close

                  With the tow bar you may have an issue. From memory on the VE and E Series the come through the body kit. But the VXR8 has a rear fog lamp in the place it would need to come through.

                  But you might be able to get round that some how.

                  Those who buy a VXR8 (HSV Clubsport) will not be dissapointed. For a Sedan . ( Saloon as you guys call them) .
