Top Gear VXR8 (G8) video

13 posts in this topic

Better watch it before YouTube takes it down...

The differences between that and the G8 are power (414 v. 362), transmission (available manual), styling (more tacky add-ons), and RHD, but other than that, they're pretty much the same.

Quite impressive. Is that 911 Turbo right above it the current model? It likely would have beat the S4 if it wasn't raining.

He loved the GTO too, so this doesn't surprise me at all. :)

Note to myself

Buy a G8 GT with 6-speed stick.

Buy a LS7 V8

Remove the LS2 from the GT

Put the LS7 in the G8

Have fun!!!

I hope we hear about it soon.

We'll see it at one auto show or another this season. Perhaps Chicago again. Production starts in ~9 months.

OMG NO WAI!

You can't compare something that sells at 35,000L with something that sells for 65,000L. This comparo is all wrong! He should have compared it to the BMW 335i because they sell at the same price! Who cares if the VXR8 is a full foot longer and 300lbs more!?! YOU HAVE TO COMPARE IT TO THE CARS IN IT'S PRICE CLASS NO MATTER WHAT!

sheesh... Clarkson is such a retard.
