Vauxhall(holden) vx220

Found this on the uk Vauxhall site

Vauxhall Astra sri 14165.00 Pounds

Holden Astra $28990 Australian dollars

Basically double

Vx220 22995 Pounds

$46000 australian dollars

Also a turbo model avaliable soon

Available from March 2003 the VX220 Turbo is powered by Astra GSi's 2.0 turbo engine producing 200bhp and achieving 0-60mph in 4.7 seconds with an on-the-road price of 25,495.

With a maximum torque of 250Nm at 1950rpm, and a weight of 920kg, the VX220 Turbo can reach a top speed of 151mph.

I know holden was thinking about getting these before, not sure why they didn't continue eg crash testing, costs, market demand

But even for $60000 for a car that does 0-100 in 4.7 sec and handles very well I would buy one.

see ya

1 AUD = 38p at the moment ...

the SRi in the UK costs AUD$37k ... we get a pretty good deal on them here ...

I'd love a VX220 to park next to the SS, but I don't know if my fat arse would fit into one :(
