Vauxhall reveals Monaro replacement

Vauxhall has replaced its Monaro with the new VXR8 super saloon, which will hit UK roads in July.

The new saloon, based on Australia’s Holden HSV Clubsport R8, is powered by the same 6.0-litre V8 as the outgoing Monaro VXR, but revisions to the engine have made it even more efficient. It now develops 418bhp and 550Nm of torque, giving it a 0-60mph time in 4.9 seconds.

The VXR8 will be the first VXR model to be offered with an automatic gearbox as a £1,400 option.

Satellite navigation and 20-inch wheels are also available as options too.

The VXR8 is priced at £34,995.
