    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)

    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.

    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?

    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!!! :eek:mg: And its a roadster!!

    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"
