    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. :scared2:

    Top Gear Dog, as he is know, was introduced at the beginning of this current series. He is Richard Hammond's dog (Hamster is a keen dog owner & also presents BBC's coverage of Crufts).

    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 :racer: :haudrauf:
