Calling out the Aussies!

I caught part of a review on Top Gear about the Vauxhall VRX8. I had never heard about it until then, but it looks like a pretty nice ride. They were comparing it to an M5, so I was wondering anyone have any first hand reviews. Is it really up the standards of an M5?

Re: Calling out the Aussies!

Yeah nah..... they're good, for the money, but not an M5 competitor. The build quality lets it down, but in a strait line they are quick. And tuning them to 500+hp at the rtreads is cheap and easy.

Re: Calling out the Aussies!

I can't really tell from that pic... do you have a bigger one, lol.

I have a 22" monitor and that thing is twice as big as it, haha.
