So I’ve been after a VXR8 for many years now. In fact I think for the last 3 or 4 years, my mother has asked me what I’ve wanted for christmas, and I give her a list that always ends with “Vauxhall VXR8”. Every year, she fails to by me one.
I’ve also failed to convince Holly that we should be buying one as a family car. I’ve also failed to convince my bank account that I actually have enough money to buy one.
Fair enough, they’ve jumped up from £35,000 to between £45,000 and £49,000, but I think that’s a bargain for an enourmous boot which can easily fit a buggy, spacious and comfy front and back seats for the family to sit in, a heck of a lot of extra features such as sat nav and electric seats, over 430 PS and a 0 – 60 time of less than 5 seconds!
It’s what every family car is supposed to be. And it’s made by Vauxhall, a respectable, well priced car manufacturer.
Anyway, as if my argument wasn’t good enough already, look at how amazing the Vauxhall is at smashing it’s manufacturers fuel consumption figures!
That’s a 50% increase in figures. Everyone should get one. And one person should give it to me*
*and then pay for the massive insurance bill, and set up a direct debit to contribute towards the ridiculous running costs. I’ll need 2 new back tyres a month.
