The Vauxhall VXR8 is a performance car marketed by Vauxhall in the United Kingdom based on two different Holden Special Vehicles (HSV) models: the Clubsport (2007–2009) and GTS (2010–present). The VXR8 is the successor to the Monaro VXR and was originally powered by a GM LS2 6.0 litre V8 and is now powered by a GM LS3 Corvette 6.2 litre V8 from the Chevrolet Corvette C6, and the Chevrolet Camaro SS. The VXR8 Bathurst Edition used the same V8 but with a supercharger and was named after the famous Bathurst race in Australia.[1][2][3]
