    Future Opel/Vauxhall roadster !

    The Pontiac Solstice, distributed in the future by Opel/Vauxhall in Europe.
    It will feature the Astra Coupe's 2.2-litre Ecotec four-cylinder power train. But the Solstice's version is supercharged and will produce a useful 180kW. The Solstice will also get a 6-speed Corvette manual transmission.
    I'm not sure, but it should reach 240 hp :-)

    2.2mods?

    Does that mean there might be a half-decent serious mod (i.e. charger) for the 2.2s? Hooray...

    at least the interior in that pic has some shape to it... that's the one thing i don't like about my astra... the interior is so flat, dull and lifeless.

    if only they had sorted that out i would be one seriously happy bunny rather than just a well chuffed one! but anyway, like i said perhaps that is a glimpse of a bit more imagination going into interior design for future models?? fingers crossed....

    Car makers never seem to carry the interiors through into production, preferring to raid the crappy parts bins of the rest of their range. Did anyone see the concept Street Ka convertible. It might have been a a Ford (euchh) but it actually looked quite smart, with the ally trim and dials. Production model is a pig, dreadful standard Ka interior trim all over again.
