Vauxhall VXR Maloo 2012 665x297

Any regular reader will know that I’m a big fan of American cars. Not necessarily the run of the mill motors like the Toyota Camry or Chevrolet Cruze, but the traditional muscle cars with unnecessarily large V8 engines that don’t actually produce that much power.

It’s certainly bold. The Vauxhall Maloo I’ve been given to test is making one massive statement, but I’m not sure what that statement is. It’s part luxurious cruiser, part muscle car and part pick up truck. I’m struggling to see the point.
