    Here is an article on the Opel Speedster/ Vauxhall VX220. The exterior was designed by Niels Loeb at Opel's design HQ in Russelheim, Germany, the interior was designed by Steven Crijns but that doesn't matter because... we only get standard Opels/Vauxhalls. :(

    Some other interesting bits on how it is different from a Lotus Elise.


    ok I'll go back on topic.

    The car is now semi-premium, so looks a tad better than the GT3 model. Would like a nice premium one though.

    How semi-premium if it doesn't have an detailed interior?

    And Vauxhall can't be removed from GT7 because there's models of Vauxhall are not sold on Germany like the Monaro and the Nova.

    Yes, but "semi-premium" means that interior is under developpement. Like the FTO, for example.

    No it doesn't. The FTO has a premium exterior, no different to this.

    Semi-premium. Not a premium.
    You said it yourself.

    British players should have Vauxhall, and the rest of Europe should have Opel. For other regions, I'm not sure.

    By that logic, then the car list for GT7 would be region specific and that would be stupid.

    Just keep either Opel or Vauxhall and get rid of what's not being kept as the two are basically the same.

    Vauxhall must not go. But Opel must also not go. I cannot allow it!

    Both should stay but also must have different cars.

    That's pretty much a Holden Commodore, haha. Well that's the problem you get by trying to include so many cars in the game. Manufacturers share platforms to drive down costs and often re-badge products I guess inevitably you'll get that in the game as well. If they would all be premium cars and could see the interiors maybe it would make more sense.

    To weigh in, I say keep both Opel and Vauxhall for GT7, but PD must also add some new cars to each manufacture.

    Examples that I'll put in quotes.

    Opel:

    Vauxhall:

    The Opel Calibra Touring car has a shorter tracking than the Vaxhuall, this is because both of them actually raced in different series.

    In other words if you cannot decide, get the Vauxhall.

    Its like getting rid of Acura NSX because the Honda NSX.

    Leave them be. I don't use them and I'm sure many do.

    It's actually not like that. In real life an Acura NSX would have significant differences from its Honda equivalent (especially the hotter Honda ones) as the Acura models were heavier and softer for the purposes of federalisation and equipment differences (most Acura NSX models were targas after a certain year I can't remember off the top of my head), and PD actually took the time to model them. Neither holds true for any of the Vaxhaull/Opel models actually in the game; and certainly not for the Vaxhaull models that PD just made up entirely.

    Vauxhall isn't a brand its a badge company, they do zero apart from putting badges on other
    GM products.

    That Carlton that you refer was made by Lotus, not from Vauxhall. I think that you're refferring to Vauxhall Omega.

    Tuned by Lotus, the Carlton is a modded Vauxhall Omega. So, it's technically both and thus; I normally call it the Vauxhall-Lotus Cortina. Like how people refer the modern Shelby GT500 as the Ford Shelby GT500.

    Thank you for that. I just noticed the visual difference and thought "that can't be right," but apparently it is. ;)

    Actually, a Vauxhall Calibra Super Touring Car as in the game never raced anywhere or in any series. The only thing that comes close was the Calibra used in ITCC for one or two races at british circuits when they changed the livery to show Vauxhall emblems, it twas technically still an Opel Calibra DTM/ITCC.

    Yep. When ITCC was finally done and they returned to call it DTM Opel didn't even change the livery for races in Britain. So while you could justify the Vauxhall Calibras existence with livery change excuse. The Astras didn't even have that. IMO, both Vauxhall race cars are fictional and could in fact stay out for GT7. Better bring a real Vauxhall, anything from Baby Bertha to a BTCC car of the 90s to today. Really, anything as long as it actually existed.

    I don't see why you care. They are not exactly the same, for one, and taking out individual cars from the game is pointless, let alone companies.
