by Joe on December 15, 2010

Vauxhall has recently announced the availability of the new VXR8 performance sedan for the UK market. The rear-wheel drive sedan is based on the face-lifted Holden HSV E3 GTS model recently launched in Australia. The new Vauxhall VXR8 is powered by a 6.2 liter LS3 engine with either a 6-speed manual or 6-speed automatic gearbox. This engine configuration produces an output of 431PS (425bhp/ 317kW) and 550Nm (406lb-ft) of torque. The sedan accelerates from 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) in only 4.9 seconds with a top speed of 155mph (250km/h). Priced at £49,500 ($77,065) inc. 20 percent VAT, the VXR8 is available only through 6 selected Vauxhall dealers in the UK. [WorldCarFans]
