  • Top Speed

    It's a bit irrelevant on the M27, but the latest Vectra owners manual (Feb 2007 edition) is showing the VXR Z28 NET engine as being electronically limited to 155mph. The website is still showing 161mph as the top speed.

    Which is correct? Was this a change, and when did it happen?

    Who is brave enough to test it (on a German Autobahn or runway)?

    It is limited .

    It was a change. It's since the new VXR's have 280 PS.

    You don't have to test it.
    Flash (German Opel Tuning Paper) testet the 280 PS version, but before driving it, they removed the limitation.
    The Caravan nearly hit 300 at speedo and 293 PS instead of 280.

      I think it is just the OPC which is restricted, the VXR isn`t ...

        Strange. Why should they limit the German one and not the English one?
        In germany you're allowed to drive as fast as you want to .

        Well, still could be possible, but I don't believe it. Technic should be the same.

        On the vauxhall page there are the new 0-60 results, but not the updated topspeed. 161 reaches the old one...
