I don't see the p;oint in this car. Just a big,fat petrol guzzler. Let the car stay in Australia, they love their big fat guzzlers.

What in the freak of nature is a beather? @ Anonymous: Hath means has in 16th century English, but honestly, last time I saw or used that word, I was singing along to a hymn in church.

@BR2,: Top Gear U.S ran one, but being that Vauxhalls and Holdens aren't sold in the United States as Vauxhalls and Holdens, I seriously doubt they got a hold of a VXR8, but Top Gear U.K. tested a Vauxhall VXR8, but not a Ford Mustang Boss 302.

@Shaggy

The car has a different cam and reduced timing and different tuning for better efficiency and 87 octane use.

Chevrolet brought back the Caprice and based it on this car, but the Caprice's engine makes 355 horsepower, it's still 6.2 liters, though, but as far as I know, it's only available as a police car. I've seen a few around, the Dublin police department in Dublin Georgia has a few.

...When did Top Gear Run a 302?..

Top Gear UK had an episode showing a Vauxhall VXR8 somehow out running a Mustang Boss 302 Laguna Seca..

Just farther evidence proving that Top Gear UK is full of crap and hates the America. The 302 Lagua Seca in reality would run circles around the Vauxhall yet they have it somehow outperforming the Boss 302.. They're smoking crack.

It's no wonder people are so ignorant about cars. The most popular car show is making them so.
