Vauxhall VXR8 (2007–2018)

What's good

Nothing on sale for similar money has as much power. 

Rapid acceleation and surprising dynamics.

Practical and spacious. 

What to watch out for

Exceptionally thirsty and expensive to tax.

Automatic can be slow-witted when exiting corners.

Big and cumbersome in a multi-storey car park.

Mustang V8 is a lot cheaper and has a similar personality.
