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?
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.
What he said
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
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.
to be honest the mpg on a vxr is fairly good am 30-31mpg
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.
