cool pictures, but the Euro Zeta's will follow a different mold due to the pedestrian crash standards. Aussie and US Zeta's will probably look a tad different, especialy teh GTO and Camaro.

I think that from what i remember the VE's will use the sigma chassis. oh and thats not the mitsubishi sigma chassis because if they did that i would buy a pistol and one bullet

.
Zeta is the new name for sigma lite. Similar to the Sigma chassis, but modified and uses different suspension components etc. The VE commodore will be out sometime in 06

Look at this pic, really cool. Charger, a member of Cheers And Gears did it.
Very nice!

However, a little too fastback/hatchback a shape for Buick. Buicks need to be sedans in the classic 3 box sense of the term. That's what they mean to the buying public.

Here's what I want to know about the Zeta platform: what about it is different from the Sigma? I understand Sigmas are expensive, so what's going to make the Zeta more economical?

Any information on this out there?

Zeta is VE. Aussie's seem to stick with the V chassis moniker for there cars, but to us, it will be known as Zeta.

Zeta uses more steel then aluminum for the suspension components. If you have ever seen the Sigma chassis, you can see the extensive amount of aluminum used in the control arms as well as throughout the body. Zeta will be a moddified chassis using more stamped steel. I dont know if you will be able to swap parts from one to the other. And from what I understand, Zeta will be much more flexable.
