what about a redline version? :drive: anybody know if there are plans for that?
I'd really like to see this, but I doubt it will happen. The new Astra is supposed to be out in 2010, so I can't see GM spending money to re-tool a redline version of the car for just one model year (especially when GM spent money on the cobalt SS which will only have a model year and a half run until the new 2010 Cobalt arrives).

That said, the Astra with the cobalt SS LNF, FE5 suspension, brembo brakes and getrag 5-speed would make one heck of a ride. If they did that for 2009 I couldn't get myself to a Saturn dealer fast enough!

Wikipedia states this, but I've never heard anything of it:

"A Redline version of the Astra is expected to hit the market at the end of 2008. It will feature the LNF 2.0L Turbo Ecotec engine, producing 260HP; this engine is also found in the SS versions of the Chevrolet HHR and Cobalt, as well as the Saturn Sky Redline and Pontiac Solstice GXP."
