    Me thinks you have insider gen here.

    But should they win the BTCC this year, there's no reason why not. But if they don't it would be a bit hollow.

    Hmmmm difficult one - in Europa Blue Hmmmmm

    I personally think that the mk5 BTCC Astra will have to prove itself like the Astra Coupe did well before 888 release it as a road car - gives us time to save up anyway - Our house will be 888 Heritage Centre in the making

    I dont think they will tbh.....when they released the 888 it was meant to sell like hot cakes, yet they had trouble shifting the last of them, I also think they would struggle to do a lot to the car without the price rocketing (barring in mind the VXR already comes witha decent set of Recaros 18's etc etc), and I also think that given a lot of the problem they had with the las tone with regards to warranty work on bodykits and seats they may well decide its not worth the hassle.....I could be wrong though, I just hope if they do bring out another 888 MK5 they make it the way they should and not water it down.

    Mmm....well they could have trouble selling as Dave says...especially since this time, the VXR will be out.

    Did the 888 coupe come out before the coupe Turbo, and hatch GSI ?
    Which would explain some of the sales....

    Maybe if they only made about 50 of them or similar then they would sell better.
    If they do do it then it will be a wicked car thats for sure
