2017 Vauxhall VXR8 Maloo is a pick-up truck that sticks two fingers up to conformity by shoehorning a frankly absurd 6.2-litre V8 under the bonnet and a six-speed manual gearbox between the front seats.

Under the bonnet sits a 6.2-litre supercharged V8 with a frankly ridiculous 671Nm of torque. It’ll do 0-62mph in 4.6 seconds and hit 155mph on a stretch of deserted, derestricted tarmac. These numbers cement the Maloo’s place as the fastest commercial vehicle on the planet – and it takes just mile or two to understand what that means. It’s the same basic motor that underpins the Chevy Camaro ZL1, and here develops 544hp and 495lb ft.
