2005 VAUXHALL MONARO VXR 500

KEY FACTS

  • A rare run-out example of Vauxhall’s Australian-influenced muscle car, in very good overall condition.
  • Under the bonnet is a 6.0-litre supercharged V8, producing 493bhp and 500lb-ft of torque, delivered to the rear wheels through a six-speed manual gearbox.
  • Developed as the final farewell to the Monaro, just 18 examples of the VXR 500 were built, in a collaboration between tuning specialist Wortec and Vauxhall. This is believed to be the final car produced.
  • This example has been discreetly modified with some further performance additions, and has low mileage supported by regular maintenance.

EQUIPMENT AND FEATURES

  • This Monaro is finished in Phantom Black metallic over a co-ordinating black leather interior with white contrast stitching.
  • It rides on its original 19-inch alloy wheels, shod with Continental tyres and housing upgraded AP Racing brake discs, pads, and red callipers.
  • Its factory specification includes electrically adjustable sports seats with three-position driver’s memory, cruise control, climate control, rear parking assistance, automatic headlights and a Blaupunkt stereo with six-disc autochanger.
  • The car is accompanied by the owner’s manual, service book and original bill of sale, as well as some previous MOT certificates and invoices relating to upgrades and maintenance. The car also comes with two keys, plus the locking wheel nut key.
