    [quote=dummi]i think they got a bit carried away with the vectra review :lol:quote]

    I agree. I don't doubt that the Vectra chassis is predominantly an understeerer, but we all know that a car's handling characteristics can be exaggerated or minimised by the way it's driven. I'm pretty certain that JC was deliberately driving the car in way that over-emphasised the understeer. I'd even go as far as to say the Stig was doing the same, and that if he'd chosen to, he could have got the car round the track on a tidier line and in a faster time than he did

    I've got no love for the Vectra whatsoever, but I do object when objectivity is set aside like that. Yes, I want to be entertained, but I don't want my opinions manipulated.

    The rest of the show was pure class, though, esp the caravan holiday and James' admission (and rapid retraction) re driving while having a joint.

    Unless verified, the new RS4 should have a 155mph speed limiter, same with the AMG models and the new M5, so indeed, the Vectra VXR is the 5th fastest production saloon.

    Yes, because it will do 161mph, it'll only be a matter of time, before the local coppers trade there remapped Skoda Octavia's for these Vectra VXR's and start testing them on the local roads haha
