Vauxhall VXR8 GTS gets detailed ahead of its debut at Autosport International

by SpeedLux

Vauxhall has recently released new details about the 2014 VXR8 GTS just ahead of its debut at Autosport International. Based on the HSV GEN-F GTS, the VXR8 GTS is considered to be a BMW M5 and Mercedes E63 AMG competitor that has a loud and proud character that the German’s can’t match.

Trolling aside, Vauxhall has confirmed that the model will come equipped with a turbocharged 6.2-liter LSA V8 engine that would generate an output of 576 hp (429 kW) and 545 lb-ft (738 Nm) of torque which is an increase of 150 hp (112 kW) and 140 lb-ft (189 Nm) compared to the previous VXR8. This enables the sedan to achieve the 0-60 mph (0-100 kmph) sprint in 4.2 seconds and will be able to hit a limited top speed of 155 mph (250 km/h).

The VXR8 GTS has been further equipped with an upgraded Magnetic Ride Control system and a new Brake-Torque Vectoring system that applies braking to the inside rear wheel and transfers torque to the outside rear wheel to reduce understeer during high-speed maneuvers.

The VXR8 GTS will be priced from £ 54,999 and the first deliveries are slated to occur early next year in 2014.
