    Vx220 Turbo Replacement On Its Way



    It's coming your way. The successor to Vauxhall's VX220 Turbo with its Lotus Elise underpinnings, will get a 250bhp 2.2-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine and arrive in the UK late in 2006. It will be clad in the Saturn Sky's bodyshell.

    It'll be a Vauxhall, sold like the VX220 through main dealers, and will cost some £22,000 -- performance of some five seconds for 0-60mph and a top speed of 150mph is promised, according to a report in Auto Express.

    hopefully it will have some alterations from the american ones i've seen, so it looks a little less mx5 and a little more vx220

    Been to Vauxhall HQ today, and the Saturn isnt suitable for a right hand drive derivative, so its just speculation at the minute apparently.

    apparentky will happen but left hand drive only as Byron said, if it goes ahead vauxhall will miss a massive sector of buyers, the vx220 has got a strong following that could be built on very well! However the links with Lotus could now well be gone
