    Default the car that never was

    some of you may not know this,some will know especialy if you have been to the vauxhall heritage museum,a few years ago 2003 to be presice vauxhall built a concept car called the vx lightening,well this is the car that was eventualy produced for europe as the opel gt,and vauxhall never produced a vauxhall version,typical isnt it,well i was going through a few pics i took on my camera phone of said car,a car you will never see on the roads or even see one unless you get a chance to go to the vauxhall heritage museum,this prototype is powered by a supercharged 2.2 engine which is from memory bored out to 2.3 litres,the opel version was 2.0 turbo.




    the last pic is of the original opel gt and shows the wheels and part of the rear end of the vx lightning
