What is Vauxhall VXR?
VXR takes the experience, knowledge and passion gained from racing and crystallises it into a range of high performance road cars. A VXR driver has a complete visceral experience with the car. They feel it, see it, hear it. And the VXR communicates precisely how much grip is left, allowing the driver to balance the car with exact, measured, controlled responses. It takes commitment, expertise and depth of resource to create cars like this and VXR is an important part of GM’s global performance family. From HSV in Australia to OPC in Germany, together with consultants Lotus and the Triple Eight racing team, it's a family that has created some of the world’s finest driver’s cars; the family who go racing – and win.
Over the past six years, Vauxhall has become the most successful manufacturer in BTCC’s modern era, accumulating over 110 wins, with seven Driver’s Championships, seven Manufacturer’s Championships and four team titles along the way.
In a nail-biting finale to the 2007 Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship (BTCC) season, VXRacing secured both the Driver and Manufacturer titles for Vauxhall. And for 2008, the team aims to maintain our unrivalled championship winning record with 2007 Driver’s Champion Fabrizio Giovanardi joined by double BTCC champion, Matt Neal. The engineers who develop VXR cars live, breathe and sleep performance cars. They know how to utilise the latest advances in automotive technology in a way that won’t detach the driver from the essential buzz of performance driving. They’re the kind of people you want developing your next performance car. Iconic performance and racing cars are part of Vauxhall’s heritage and VXR is the latest strand to this DNA.
