The 2005 Vauxhall Monaro VXR (V2) 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.
