    every coupe is 'Bertone' as that's where they were styled. The Linea Rossa is a special edition that only came in either Flame Red or Silver Lightning. They featured Linea rossa door sills and velour floor mats, Red and black leather interior, gunmetal gearknob with red highlighting. The 1.8 and 2.2 had the SE2 alloys, and the 2.0T had the coupe turbo alloys

    No longer owns an Astra


    Bye bye VXR Castle Combe Edition - because it's done more laps of Castle Combe than most Bergs have of the Ring

    Opel Linea Rossa Coupe and Cabrio came in Magma Red, Carbon Black, Star Silver, Chianti Red or Lightning Silver with 1.6, 1.8, 2.2, 2.0T or 2.2 DTi engines;
    Vauxhall Linea Rossa Coupe and Convertible came in Magma Red or Lightning Silver with 1.8, 2.2 or 2.0T engines;
    Holden Linea Rossa Convertible only (we never got any of the Coupes - thanks a lot Holden) came in Magma Red with 2.2 engine only.
    All the other features were pretty much the same between the 3 marques: black and red leather with red stitching, alloy gear knob, Linea Rossa door sills and 17inch alloys.
    Old enough to know better . . . Too old to care!

    As said the Linea Rossa is a special edition with unique trim.



    Front and rear door cards, steering wheel, front and rear seats, gear gaiter are all red and black leather. This is the same for coupes and cabs.

    They come in either silver or red only.

    A bertone is just a normal coupe, they were designed by Bertone. HTH
