    The best Vauxhall since the ... well, since ever?

    Vauxhall couldn't be bothered designing a sportscar, so they got Lotus in. Fine. But then, they noticed the best cat they ever created wasn't flying off the lots as expected. No. It wasn't because of the the badge. Vauxhall realized it was because the similar Lotus sibling was faster and more fun to drive.

    So they created this:

    And then the same man who is allegedly a Vauxhall Hater proclaims this:

    They were cool little things. I've always loved them. I remember going to the adelaide car show in south australia seeing one of these dressed up as a holden. I still think saturn knocked off the styling for the sky, I don't care what anyone else thinks.

    I think it's more like GM/Saturn knew the Sky would be rebadged as the replacement for the VX220 and designed it with that in mind.

    Love that car... Not sure which I'd have, the Lotus or Vauxhall. Probably the Vauxhall because of the turbo

    I wish I could fit in a Lotus... I can sort of fit if I put my left leg out the window and try to drive with my right foot sideways but this makes acceleration and braking difficult.

    I got a Vauxhall now but before i wasn't sure which to go with it was either Vauxhall or Lotus. I whent for a Vauxhall Corsa now very happy with it although i sometimes wish i bought the Lotus thankfully Vauxhall spares are more affordable than Lotus'.
