Shortly before the VXR's production was ceased, a high performance VXR was introduced known as the VXR 500.
It has the same V8 as the standard VXR except it has been supercharged to generate 500bhp. It was replaced by the Vauxhall VXR8.
Need for Speed: Most Wanted
The Monaro VXR appears in Need for Speed: Most Wanted with almost identical acceleration, top speed and handling as the Pontiac GTO (2005), which is expected as they both share the same chassis design.
Its acceleration is decent when upgraded, and it is also heavy, making it useful for pursuits, as it can easily ram police vehicles.
Need for Speed: Carbon
It has powerful acceleration and heavy mass, making it useful in pursuits, and its ability to hold slides make it very useful for drift events.
The stock Monaro VXR is unlocked for purchase in the Career mode depending on the player's chosen career path:
- Exotic: Take over The Projects, Kempton
- Muscle: Take over Fortuna Heights, Fortuna
- Tuner: Take over Kempton Holdings, Kempton
Once unlocked, it can be purchased from any Car Lot for 45,000 cash.
Top Speed 2.5
Need for Speed: World
The Vauxhall Monaro VXR is an unreleased car that was going to appear in Need for Speed: World, and would have been featured as a B class car.
- During a pursuit, dispatch will refer to the Monaro as a sports car.
