    Default Silver Vectra 'GTO' Thamesdown Drive Swindon

    Driving to work this morning and pulled alongside a Silver Vectra with the registration KH07 xxx and noticed it had huge 19/20" wheels and noted that the model designation was 'G T O' which was strange and then on the bonnet I saw two huge black vinyl bonnet stripes.

    The whole effect was very strange although the car looked mint.

    Anyone know this car?????

    I saw this on Monday evening. I was in Swindon to see the Levellers and whilst driving around hunting for a parking space I saw this going in the other direction...and I thought the same....it said GTO but I was sure it was a Vectra. It looked very nice...
    I wonder what the story is??

    Poetic licence? Thought GTO was a Mitsubishi. Opel have the GTS which equates to SRI and OPC which equates to VXR IIRC.
