The chunky bucket seats have plenty of adjustment to help you get comfortable at the wheel – as well as plenty of support to hold you in place when you're throwing the car around. The dash looks a bit plain, but all the controls are easy to use. However, the coffee-table-sized spoiler on the back obscures your rear vision, and the handbrake is awkward to use.
Vauxhall VXR8 space & practicality
Cars this fast are rarely this roomy. The cabin is massive, and even the most generously proportioned passengers will have room to stretch out. There's space for three across the rear bench, provided that the occupant of the middle seat is prepared to straddle a bulky transmission tunnel. The boot is immense, too.
Vauxhall VXR8 equipment
You expect a few toys when you're spending this sort of cash – and you get them. Every VXR8 comes with dual-zone climate control, electrically adjustable sports seats, a high-grade stereo with CD changer, automatic lights and wipers, parking sensors and a Bluetooth hands-free phone system as standard. However, that’s pretty much it – unless you want one of the Bathurst editions, the options basically extend only to sat-nav.
