    News - Vectra mid-life facelift

    http://www.channel4.com/4car/gallery...vectra-fl.html

    Spy Shot: Vauxhall Vectra facelift
    When it was first launched some three years ago, the Vectra came in for criticism because of the blandness of its nose. And here, we see evidence of the mid-life facelift that will be debut late this summer. This mule, caught on cold-weather test in Finland, sports a much more aggressive face, with multi-lensed headlights that are remarkably similar to those of the much more recently launched Astra. It is likely that Vauxhall will also take the opportunity to make mild modifications to the suspension to deliver a more sporting driving experience. Likewise, the steering may also receive attention to give more feel and more precise response. And just as with the Astra range, which will gain a hot VXR model later this year, the Vectra should also gain a VXR model, although this is unlikely to appear before 2006.

    Not sure on those lights, they look a little squashed up, though any idea on what actual model that is I'm quite a big fan of the Vectra the way it is ATM as my dad owns one

    It is a development car and the light have tape on them to hide the true shape. They are just like Mk5 Astra lights in reality. Looks way better than the current ones IMHO.

    now that front end looks a lot better
    they need to make the vectra RWD in vxr or 4X4 as the wheel spin will be 2 much 240bhp is a bit 2 much for FWD cars i think rwd is the way to go just use the oz cars as a base

    240bhp? WHere did you get that from?

    The VXR will apparently be a 3.2 v6 24v twin turbo fwd - with a lot more than 240bhp.

    sounds like a bit much for a FWD car to me.
