Lotus Carlton named best Vauxhall

Tue, 02 Dec 2008
The Lotus Carlton super-saloon has been voted the best Vauxhall car ever.

Chosen by drivers of the manufacturer's vehicles, the results were gathered over a month by VauxhallDriversCentre.co.uk.

When asked about the first-placed model, the online resource said: "The Lotus Carlton was a technical tour de force for Vauxhall and garnered immense press respect for its power, performance and dynamics."

The vehicle had a top speed of 176 mph and could go from standing to 62 mph in 5.4 seconds.

When it was launched, the model was the fastest four-door production car on the road.

Meanwhile, the survey also revealed the Monaro was the favourite Vauxhall vehicle from the last five years.

With a 5.7-litre engine, the model was described as being a "rear-wheel drive muscle car".

In related motoring news, following the pre-Budget report from Alistair Darling, Vauxhall announced it would be passing on the full 2.5 per cent cut in VAT to its customers.
