Exclamation Vauxhall VXR8 Gets Corvette's 6.2-liter LS3 Engine for Summer

Put simply the Vauxhall VXR8 is a re-badged version of the HSV Clubsport developed by Holden Special Vehicles. So it comes as little surprise to see the UK version get the new 6.2-litre LS3 V8 engine which was first used in the 2008 Corvette before finding its way down under to the HSV range.

Replacing the outgoing LS2 unit, the LS3 increases its power by 14hp to 431hp, acceleration from 0-60mph now lies at 4.9 seconds (previously 5 seconds flat). Although the price has now increased by 485 to 35,695.

See press release below for full details.
