To a possible new owner,

The story behind the VXR 500:
Wortec and principal dealer Greens Vauxhall conceived a project to produce a high powered version of the normally aspirated 403bhp Monaro VXR in early 2006. Testing started with various options that included naturally aspirated, turbo charged and supercharged options were fitted to various cars and after three months of evaluation, a clear winner emerged. Wortex chose to use the Harrop positive displacement supercharger. When added to a fuel upgrade and a fully mapped PCM, it produced a reliable 500PS and had the potential to go to 600PS if required. Doing the design of the VXR 500, the VXR brand team were aware of the project and on completion gave it their official backing which put the VXR 500 into history as the most powerful Vauxhall ever sold. EVO magazine said Moral corruption comes in many guises, but none so glorious as this, the supercharged 493bhp Monaro VXR 500. Yes, it has so much more power but Vauxhall did not want to push it with the figures as they felt marketing at 500 was the respectable approach.

I have always loved Holden’s due to my second home is Australia and my favourite movie being Mad Max – that film was not all about Ford Falcon’s! My appreciation for Monaro’s stretches back to my first one in 2007 – a twelve hundred mile naturally aspirated 6.0 VXR in Redhot. Since then, I have been fortunate to of owned quite a few but I have always hankered after the VXR 500 because it is the ultimate to me. A car I wanted to have and keep forever, which still may be the case but my recent house move and renovation is taking its toll – so fate decides on this one I feel.

Anyway, what has my one of a very few supercharged V8 got? Well, everything apparently…
