The special edition is outfitted with a Walkinshaw Performance 122 Supercharger that cranks up the standard car’s 431 horsepower to an earth shattering 560 horsepower.

Vauxhall insists that they could have gotten even more power out of the supercharger but for drivability and durability reasons, the company decided against it.

2012 Vauxhall VXR8 Bathurst S Interior :
2012 Vauxhall VXR8 Bathurst S Interior. – Vauxhall models, usually released as Opel outside of the U.K., very rarely find themselves onto the pages of RSportsCars. The Vauxhall VXR8 Bathurst S is not like other Vauxhall models, though. The VXR8 Bathurst dispenses with 560 horsepower by way of a supercharged LS3 V8, and puts that power to the road through a composed and stylish sedan chassis.

The VXR8 Bathurst looks decidedly non-British, with its strange hybrid styling of the large Pontiac G8 GXP, a Ford Fusion or Australian market Falcon, and perhaps some Holden Commodore thrown in for good measure.

2012 Vauxhall VXR8 Bathurst S Exterior :
2012 Vauxhall VXR8 Bathurst S Exterior. – Makes sense, the VXR8 is loosely based from both the Holden and G8 models, featuring the GM-sourced LS3 V8 found in both models. Unlike the G8 GXP, though, the 2010 VXR8 Bathurst S features a true manual 6 speed transmission. Some may find the VXR8 Bathurst’s styling a bit overblown, what with its EVO esque front end and big side air inlets. Those who appreciate the heft of the car’s blower, though, should like these features just fine.
