That's what I was thinking.

I wouldn't mind a white GXP right now...

@ Apathy
Yeah, I am pretty sure that 12.5 is incorrect. I guess it may be possible but this car is essentally the same as the Pontiac G8 GT/GXP and those cars run mid 13s for the GT (6.0L) and low 13s or very high 12s for the GXP (6.2L). I have a G8 GT (A6) with a CAI, headers (stock mufflers), and a tune and it has run a best of 12.58 @ 110mph. That was in great weather and has run a best of 112mph trap speed. I doubt you could see 12.5s stock in the VXR8.

12.5 1320? Not bad.

Is there a source for that time?

The plate "De51 red" is owned by Vauchall and is chopped and changed from many differen cars. Mainly due to a change in focus in promoted model but sometimes when a journalist bends it :)

The Walkinshaw aftermarket cars are not factory supported. They lose all factory warranty...

RedVYIISS do you guys get the Supercharged version as well or is that one of the UK specific versions? I have a "normal" VXR8 on test for a few days in April which should be fun! ;-)

Car is built on Australia, and has an engine from the US. It only receives some fettling in the UK...

Like I was saying.... I'm 100% wrong! I confused myself because the picture originally on this car was of the red car number plate DE51 RED which features in this months EVO magazine..... LORD the Supercharged version is a different car, Vauxhall sell them as different versions as far as I can tell..... I'm talking to them at the moment to get a test drive arranged.

the supercharger is just a £6000 optional extra - not a different car

I also didn't remember him saying anything about supercharged engine or 530 hp. And I also think both of those lap times are from the one and only VRX8 version which is not supercharged.

The standard VXR8 and supercharged version get mixed up because magazines tend to use the pictures of the supercharged version when talking about the normal one.....

Roadtest of the standard one shows its not really that quick....

I'm deleting the lap times as they are for the supercharged version..... I added them in the first place so I'm 100% sure.....
