Opel Vectra Spied
Due to be unveiled at the 2008 London Motor Show (July 23 to 3 August, 2008) the new Opel Vectra (which will also base a mid-size Saturn) has been caught on camera by Automotorsport performing test runs on an airfield in Germany. Despite the "military" camouflage it’s quite obvious that Opel designers took a really close look at the Geneva Show GTC Concept while drawing up the Vectra. Undoubtedly, Vectra’s most prominent feature is its sleek, coupe-like roofline. If you’ve seen the GTC’s interior then you won’t be surprised with the Vectra’s cabin as according to Opel’s officials
The new Vectra will based on GM’s all-new mid-size platform which will allow the use of a 4WD system for the very first time in the models history. The same platform will also be used on the next generation Saab 9-3 & 9-5 and Cadillac BLS. The Vectra will be offered with a wide variety of engines including an 180Hp+ 1.6-liter Turbo and 290Hp 2.8-liter V6 Twin-Turbo versions.
