Under the bonnet you will finda 2.0 litre four cylinder engine that has beenturbocharged to produce a very healthy 240bhp, which will silence most rivals in bar room bragging scenarios.

It is more than ableto propel the VXR to 152mph and allows it to hit sixty in 6.2 seconds which are impressive figures. The power ismanaged by a traction control system which intervenes if and when the front wheels start spinning. The engine is mated to a six-speed gearbox, although there's so much torque, you'll spend most of your time in 2nd, 4th and 6th.

A curious feature of the VXR's engine is the sound it makes which Vauxhall claims is the result of acoustic tuning. A fan-like roar can be heard from the exhaust when the engine is delivering maximum turbo boost (when its being driven hard). The ride issurprisingly good for a sporty car with compliant suspension, that does a good job of soaking up the lumps and bumps but also keeps it composed and feeling sporty.

Front seats offer plenty of lateral support and the interior is roomy enough to carry four adults without complaint. The VXRhas been equipped witha generous level of equipment which includes air conditioning, 18-inch alloys, electric windows, heated electric mirrors, part-leather Recaro seats and a CD MP3 player.
