    VXR or 888

    Just been watching a video on youtube from 5thh gear where a VXR vs a 888.

    It got me thinking what would the AOC member rather have and why?

    If it was me I'd have a T8 all day long. Almost the same performance, it's much rarer than a VXR, better MPG and it'll hold it's valuve better than the VXR due to it being a limited edition.

    That would be a hard one for me as i like the extras the 888 has like the alcons etc but not as much tuning posabilities as the VXR.

    would depend on financial circumstances. if i could afford to throw away the fuel that the vxr uses i would have one all day. prefer the vxr for looks. but if my next car is going to be a diesel the 888 is definately number 1 on the list

    I'd go for the T8 because there aren't many of them around

    ..But of course, wouldn't say no to any of them!

    It's a tough one, you can get decent power out of the 888 and the torque is immense. The 888s are gorgeous but I do prefer the VXR styling.

    For me it would come down to what I wanted to do power wise, once you've done the tuning box, remap, etc on the 888 I don't think there's much else you can do power wise. Where as the VXR seems to have a lot more options.

    I think I'd still go for the VXR because of styling and the greater amount of options available for the engine.

    Currently if I could find a white 888 for sale I would be very tempted to buy it. But I cant find any of the 15 for sale!
    But ultimately Id have a VXR if I was doing less mileage and tune it.
