    Now, i really wouldn't mind one of them

    55mpg and a hell of a lot of power? Seems pretty spot on.

    I got a ride to work in one a couple of weeks ago when my car was in for a service at TMS. they are quite nice, exhaust sounds gd but pretty harsh ride. The person didnt put their foot down though so im not sure what the power is like. So was just like a loud bumpy diesel!

    things
    why that center exit exhaust
    No VXR front bumper
    that exhaust looks pants you can see the pipe work under bumper big silver pipe
    its not a VXR
    I am sure vauxhall will have a high power derv twin turbo in the Mk6

    How many more 'special' editions can they make?
    Maybe they have lots of Pro race wheels to get shot of, so keep making special editions to use up the stock

    You have a point about the exhaust Danny, but don't you think they will correct this when the order book starts to increase. The backbox is quite visible but surely an easy remedy.....

    I can see these VXR-D's being quite expensive!.... Nice car though....

    Instead of specing the front bumber as an option it should be standard seeing as they are calling it a 'VXR'. Still looks nice though.

    Thurlby 888 springs to mind!!!
