there are 100+ hp versions of the car useing the same supercharger as the bathurst running at higher pressures! but the issue with the 0-60 is although thiis car has very good traction all of the 530 hp just cant be put down to the raod not enogh traction to do so.

the 0-60 takes almost the same time as the regular vxr8? the superchargers 100 horsepower dont seem to do enough? how do the germans do it? maybe gear ratio makes the difference?

Walkinshaw Australia is a company that is owned by HSV (the people who make the VXR8) and do aftermarket enhancements, one such kit is a Supercharger kit upping power to 370kw (more if additional bolt ons are added).
Check the HSV or the Walkinshaw Performance site for more info.

I wouldn't have added it if it didn't exist! Shall I enter the two lap times I had again or can they be recovered? They were both from the same car (the one in the picture).... link to the supercharged version.....

http://www.autocarmag.com/CarReviews/FirstDrives/Vauxhall-VXR8-6.0-V8-Supercharged/229388/

The times for the other VXR8 are wrong they should be closer to 5.5sec to 100kph thats why this one is no quicker.....

Have some trust guys!

That's a good question. A quick search did not get any results. This car (version of VRX8) appears to be non-existent.

does this car exist - we hav the vxr8 on the database, i don't know of a supercharged one with 100hp more, and if it does have a 100hp more y does 0-60 take the same time, a supercharged version is not mentioned on vauxhalls website
