    Vauxhall Astra R8.....literally

    Was browsing the foreign owners websites and stumbled across this:

    Top marks for effort, although I dont think it quite works!

    It doesn't pull it off at all well in my opinion.

    Hmm, good effort but doesn't work for me. Rear end looks totally wrong, shouldn't have tried to copy the R8 end, but done something custom instead. Front works well apart from lights look a poor fitted.

    Props for the effort but don't like it. As said the rear is aweful. The front does look OK but needs a bit of tweaking.

    .....wow, the idea was nice, but using an Astra?!

    I've seen people converting an NSX to a F40, but an Astra?

    Rear end would look soooo much nicer if it was smoothed instead of the massive recess and vents, front end doesn't work although the wide look would suit the standard bonnet fair play to the guy though, he had guts to do something different lol
