Choppin' Competition #45 - Saturn ASTRA

30 posts in this topic

Welcome to Choppin' Competition #45!


Posted Image


As what has been regarded by many as GM's finest compact in forever makes its way to our shore in the coming months, excitement is all but waning. And with a car so well-designed and seemingly well-engineered, what could be possibly be improved? How about a proper coupe? Sedan? The TwinTop? RedLine? Something completely original? That's up to you.

Your task, should you choose to accept it, is to Modify the Saturn ASTRA in any way you see it. A mild change, a wild change, or anything in between is find. A super-efficient Green Line or hot RedLine are some ideas. Remember that foreign market Astras have a wide variety of bodystyles to choose from, so use a TwinTop or sedan as you base if you'd like, or come up with your own original ragtop or four-door. Please use only use the ASTRA (any Astra is fine) for your base image!

I choose to keep it simple . Nothing more than a US Astra Redline . I used the GTC concept wheels , black chrome accents and tried to mimmick the new Kappa twins brazen orange color .

Bah I've done an orange one as well (but before I saw your post) and now I feel like I might want to change my color choice.

MRDETROITMETAL, you're chopping a chop. This is from GMInsideNews' Revitalization In Action team, and you're just chopping their impression of the next-generation Saturn Astra, see attachment below.

And on that note, the original chop is far superior.

Hey NOS, don't let stiff competition keep you from tryin man. Usually the best anyone does is where the competition is fierce.
