Autocar in the UK has just reviewed the European version of our HSV GTS sedan, the Vauxhall VXR8, and posted the full review up on its YouTube channel for us all to interpret.
The team seems to be pleased with the car overall, praising its usable handling and grunty 317kW V8 engine, describing it as a “fantastically entertaining” drive. Autocar also welcomes the Enhanced Driver Interface (EDI) system which provides various visuals about the car’s current setting.
The review does make special mention about the car’s European price however, which has gone up recently from £35,000 to £50,000 ($55,000 to $87,000). This puts the VXR8 into Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG territory, which Autocar says is a much more refined and faster package.
