The Vauxhall Monaro VXR is a rebranded Australian V8 Holden Monaro sold in the United Kingdom under the Vauxhall brand.

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.

Games

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.

The two exceptions are the different engine noise and that the Pontiac GTO has a slightly higher top speed when tuned. It is unlocked after the player defeats Blacklist racer #10 - Baron.

In Challenge Series events #61 and #62, players have to drive a Monaro VXR.

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

The Monaro VXR appears in Need for Speed: Carbon as a tier 2 muscle class car.

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.

Stock

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.
