Picked it up this morning and sitting on the boat in Cairnryan. 200 mile drive and I'm addicted. 2.2 might not be a powerhouse but it's torquey and pull surprisingly well given the poor bhp specs. Was wet for 90% of the drive but when I got a few dry spots it was just brilliant.

Few bits to tidy up etc but wouldn't be me if there weren't.

Unreal cars - they were bargains for a long time but have climbed back up in value. The Turbos were as quick as a 911 turbo of the same year (with half the horsepower!!)

So day 2, car is brilliant fun. Took it a run down to Kirkistown with @Cooper in his Exige. Had to resist hard to stop taking it out for a few laps. I havent been near a track in years but one run out in the Exige and Ive got the bug again. So the VX will get a once over and out in the next one.

Gave it a bit of a bath when I got home, and popped the griffin off the back. Starting a list of jobs but house move takes priority for a while.

Great job, love the Elise platform and this is a reasonable way in. (y)

Wonder can you retrofit a k-series in one of these easily? I'd imagine so.. ;)

Looking good,

Was up with @lightning the other day spending more money and met nice fella who seemed to be well up in Vauxhall and had a good few stories about the vx220

Ive seen a couple of posts on the vx220 forum where people have leaned on the windscreen getting out of the car and cracked it.. nice way to get rind of £1000.
Better be careful as it looks like you have a rare one with the black rim as the mostly came in silver.

Looks great and I am sure it is great fun to drive around in it. Wouldn’t bother me that it had a poor front bumper respray, will probably get peppered on a trackday anyway. I always remember a car show did a yellow one of these, (cant recall the name of the show but had Dominic Littlewood and VBH) and thinking it looked like great fun. Enjoy
