    Congratulations to the VX220 Turbo........

    Just had this in an e-mail from the VxlSCC...........

    VX220 TURBO ROARS TO TOP PERFORMANCE AWARD

    The stunning VX220 Turbo has beaten all comers – from Aston Martin to Porsche and Ferrari – to take the Performance Car of the Year crown in this year’s CAR magazine awards.

    CAR’s editor, Angus Mackenzie, said the £25,995 VX220 won “because it fulfilled every criteria better than any other car on test.”

    Well done Vauxhall.

    Unfortunately that is all we can do

    Due to the trouble of heat and titchy intercooler space they can't take a VX past phase 1 at the moment. Radical body mods time methinks :shock:

    I think AMD got them to 260Bhp, software, chargecooler, piperX and full exhaust (CAT back) from milltek. That will be quick, they weigh 930Kg ?, which would make it 280Bhp/ton :shock: :shock: :shock: .
