    Thumbs up Penfold's Motor Show Pics...

    Ok, so as part of our first anniversary of being together, my girlfriend got us a couple of tickets to the British Motor Show in London - well known on here as the launch of the Insignia...

    Lots of cars in a HUGE place - so here's the pictures!

    Enjoy!

    The classic RS200... Always hilarious after having seen Jeremy Clarkson crashing one of these which had 700bhp...


    The LP640 - bit yellow for my liking...



    The old V8 Vantage...



    ...and it's out of date tax disc...



    The infamous Top Gear spoiler...



    An arty-farty shot by my girlfriend Rebecca...



    The Corsa Arctic...



    The interior of the new VXR8 - leather and alcantara. This is how I'd retrim my Insignia...



    Examining an Astra Convertible...



    Rebecca taking a liking to the Antara (will have to talk her out of that one...)



    GM's new hybrid motor thingy...



    The new Chevrolet Lacetti - a reasonably priced car...?





    Erm - it's just huge... And orange...



    ...and plastic...



    ...and small...



    The Nissan GTR doing it's Nurburgring lap...



    The Focus RS - Not too keen on the colour but the shape isn't too bad...



    Same again for the new Fiesta...



    And well done Ford for giving out free drink and lollies in green and purple...



    Rebecca discovers that the Galaxy is so-called for a very good reason...



    ...and finds the odd pop-down-rear-view-mirror-thingy...



    And from the Top Gear Police Car episode...





    Who said brown was back in fashion...?



    30" alloys anyone...?



    And last but definitely not least - the Insignia







    Mmmm - me want...







    Yup - I'll definitely be getting one in the future at some point - on looks alone they're amazing and have certainly transformed the Vectra. Just need to retrim it inside so it's more like the VXR8, and if you go for the SRi - don't get the leather interior. It just looks horrid for some reason...

    If you get the chance to go before it finishes, do so - it's a great day out...

    Thanks for the pics.

    A few on here have been talking about what the optional VXR pack is for the new Insignia. In fact, wasn't it MattB who has ordered it as one of the options on his Insignia.....? Anyway, I reckon the first pic of the Insignia (Silver car) here in Penfolds pics could very well have the VXR pack fitted.
    What do you think.?

    Vehicle : Insignia Tourer

    Trim : Elite

    Engine : 2.0 CDTI (160ps)

    Year : 2010

    Default

    Great pics, looks like a great day out.

    The more I see it, the more I don't like the Insignia. I think Vauxhall will finally lose my loyalty when it's time to change the Vecs this time round.

    You could have a point - it does look a tad bit different, although that could just be an SRi kit...

    If it IS the VXR kit, I'm not sure it's worth 800 squid extra to be honest...
