No Vauxhall VX for Britain

Posted Image

Somewhere in England, Jeremy Clarkson weeps (at least I'd like to think so).

British performance fans should prepare themselves for a disappointment. Even though General Motors' 'global' sports car will make it to Europe badged the Opel GT, it won't be coming to the UK.

While bosses were originally keen to bring the two-seater GT here, Vauxhall can't make financial sense of converting the rear-wheel-drive model to right-hand drive and fitting Griffin badging. After taking into account promotional costs and the number of likely sales, they decided we Brits could do without it.

Somewhat old news though. We know that the Kappa couldn't be RHD. I really hope they test it on Top Gear. Then I'll see what Jeremy says, and compare that to what he said about the Solstice earlier.
