First drive: Vauxhall VXR8 GTS

Martyn Collins



Back after an 18 month absence, Vauxhall's re-badged Aussie super saloon, the VXR8, is being re-introduced to UK showrooms.

Priced from £49,500 in top-spec GTS form, the revised VXR8 has changes to the interior and exterior styling, plus more technology. Will this be enough to tempt buyers away from other super saloons like the Audi RS6, Jaguar XFR and Mercedes E63 AMG? We headed out on UK roads to find out.
