Officially known as the Vauxhall VXR8 Tourer, it is a part of the VXR8 range (which includes the saloon and Maloo pick-up) and is the UK's largest estate car by load volume, as well as one of the world's most powerful wagons.
The Vauxhall VXR8 Tourer shares the same 431PS powertrain with its VXR8 saloon and Maloo siblings. In performance terms, this translates to a 0-60mph time of 4.9 seconds and an electronically limited top speed of 155mph. It also makes it the fastest Vauxhall estate the company has ever produced.
Drive is delivered to the rear axle of the VXR8 Tourer via the latest MM10 six-speed manual gearbox with uprated LS7 clutch or a six-speed auto 'box, each working through a mechanical limited slip differential.
And there's no better chassis than the VXR8 Tourer's to cope with this level of performance. Like the VXR8 and Maloo, the Tourer uses MacPherson struts/progressive rate coils at the front and a multi-link independent set-up at the rear. Standard launch control helps drivers make best use of the Tourer's huge torque during brisk acceleration without unnecessary wheel-spin.
