so its over on the continent then ?
that i believe is the Opel. from a distance, the emblem looks like Opel. in another thread, i mentioned when they released the Opel GT (@ an auto show) the badging looks almost IDENTICAL to the Saturn Sky, compared to the production badge in the grille)
(concept's upper grille)
(production's upper grille)
Here's the Saturn Sky's front
yeh its like the vauxhall turbo thinymagigi as well, i saw this last month on topgear and posted it on the atari forums
That actually looks pretty cool. Is it going or is it IN production?
Its an Opel. It is in production only in Europe as an Opel or in the U.S. as a Saturn. From what i remember reading in TG mag they have no plans to bring it to the U.K. and put a Vauxhall badge on it. Which is good as putting a vauxhall badge on a car ruins it.
if it was made by general motors in the 1st place it was ruined
It does indeed ruin the car^^. Thats a shame though because it's very unlikely i will ever see one on the road
In the past week i have seen Two of the old shape VX220 (opel GT) which was basically a lotus elise with a new shell.
Does anyone know if this new one is a lotus elise with a new shell on it or a complete new car?
no! definitely not , as a lotus elise owner we get all the info from lotus sent to us through ownders clubs and never heard of that .
also lotus wouldnt make a car like that too heavey !
i agree. i looked @ specs for the Slostice/Sky @ saturn, and Pontiac's website, and those things weigh as almost as much as my 2003 WRX!!! mg: And its a roadster!!
The original VX220 has the same roof and the same basic chasis but as you say it is heavier.
Also if you look here Tif says it is even built by Lotus
YES , the vx220 was designed on the lotus "award winning" chassis and designed by lotus .
it was built in the lotus factory which as a lotus owner i got to have a tour of , and was told about the vx220
it was heavier ofcourse , less good looking , and a worse car than the lotus
many people just say its the " Tesco value lotus"
