    Default New Opel GT is not an Opel!!!!!

    Went to Southampton today with work, and on the way back along the M3 just by Fleet Services, there is a Car Sales place right on the edge of the motorway with loads of Mustangs etc, and immediately got excited as following on from this thread, http://forum.vectra-c.com/showthread.php?t=49882 i spotted what i thought was the new Opel GT. It was in fact a Saturn Sky which is what it is obviously based on as they are identical.

    Yeah very common for Saturn/Opel/VX all to use the same cars. Only difference is the yanks have different engines in some of the cars i.e. the Vec.

    That last one will confuse the hell out of people!

    Don't like the second one. It looks like, well, put your top lip over your bottom lip.

    Saturn is the AMERICAN name, Saturn were losing money left right and center and were about to go under... GM came in and rescued them! Now Saturn is a very popular brand in america as it has EUROPEAN STYLING!

    The new 4x4, cant remember its name at mo is selling quite well out there and they also have a VECTRA version too!

    also in one of the ebay pics there is a yellow american version of our VX220!
