  3. oh yeah, very nice... riiight.. no way man, this is an opel >:-/

    what r they trying to do, getting rid of their dusty, boring, grandma's car image?? pfffft.. for once they're producing something that's not designed for looking, performing and driving average and immediately they need to turn to lotus...
    yes, this speedster IS a lotus elise !! the 2 cars share too much to consider this opel an individual car..
    besides, for that money, who would even consider buying an opel?? i'd rather have a cheap version of the mercedes slk or a mazda rx7 (or wait for the new rx8)

    statement: opel will never make a really cool car, at least not by themselves . . .

    ur an idiot, opels are very nice cars, what with the speedster, vauxhall extreme and what not, and even some of their slower models are amazing. for a car with only 145 hp to do go in 5.6 seconds, thats amazing, it takes a fire bird over 300 to get going the fast, however theres a difference between them, the opel actuelly looks good! infact i think its gorgous, midengined two seater and its topless, what more could u want?<!-- Signature -->

    What is wrong with you, never be cool. How about the Astra Coupe Xtreme V8, the Calibra turbo 4x4, the steinmetz Za4a(super mpv zafira 2ltr turbo 240bhp), the omega lotus, the Steinmetz speedster. That's cool. You know shit about cars. Opel is the best selling car in Europe, and that isn't because it isn't cool. Have your head checked!!

    A sweet van buddy, im looking for performance, im going to buy a van. Ha, What the original dood said is somewhat true. This is a cool car and everyone copies off everyone else. Jeep started the SUV trend. Everyone else is in it so yell at those people.

    u cant be so wrong opels are good
     
  8. Re: opel will never b cool . . .

    Como pueden decir que Opel no es buen carro, yo creo que el que dice eso es porque no los conoce.
    Este carro (opel speedster) tiene un motor 2.2 16v y con eso le basta para correr de 0-100km en 5.5 segundos. Si este carro tuviera un supercargador como el que va a tener el pontiac roadster que va a ser presentado en el Auto sohw de Detroit, simplemente volara!!!!!!
    Este pequeño motor de 145 hp con supercargador sube a 220 hp.
    Y no es solo el motor lo que hace a un Opel un buen carro, es toda la tecnología que trae en un carro relativamente economico. No digan que un Opel es un mal carro, solamente manejenlo...

    Actually you seem to have left off a few facts about the Firebird.

    Firebird Trans-Am
    0-60 5.0 seconds
    1/4 mile 13.0 seconds
    165mph top speed

    Firebird WS6
    0-60 4.9 seconds
    1/4 mile 12.8 seconds
    167mph top speed

    What you fail to realize is that like the Lotus Elise this car runs out of steem around 118 to 125mph.

    Your redlined and maxed out and your just not going any faster.

    With that stated I DO like the Opel Speedster.

    But while your sitting around trying to bag on American cars remember theses two facts.

    1) GM OWNS OPEL

    2) THE SPEEDSTER USES A GM ECO-TEC 4 CYLINDER ENGINE

    I'm gonna write a book called "Automotive Knowledge For Dummies" and you can read it so you won't look like such a dumb#$%# when you post things like this.

    Maybe Opel will never be "cool", but they can make some damn good cars, with a little help from friends. This is a great car and wish if the Elise was not coming over that this would. Wouldnt this car make a great replacement for the firebird, not as a firebird, but to give pontiac a fast car to fill the void left after the f-bodies go to the graveyard.
     
  12. Re: opel will never b cool . . .

    i think opel need an xtra lay of zink, but there cars are cool.
     
  13. Re: opel will never b cool . . .

    opels are great cars and the dumbass who thinks that a razor scooter can go faster you might as well shove the scooter up your ass

    3 points for you, 1) Why did you choose a Firebird? 2) Why did you compare this car to a car that weighs more then twice as much? and 3) Who said that Musclecars don't look as good as this, i'd take the Firebird over this, just because i like the muscle car stance, rather then some pussy little 4.<!-- Signature -->

    The Speedster is an awesome looking car. The Elise is better, but it is more expensive. <!-- Signature -->

    The Speedster / VX220 shares fewer than 200 components with the Elise S2 - and this excludes the chassis. Both chassis are constructed in the same manner (i.e. bonded aluminium) but the engine mountings and spacing is different for each. As a package, less than 10% of components are shared.<!-- Signature -->

    this car is #$%#ing hot i dont know what the hell youre talking about.
     
  23. Re: opel will never b cool . . .

    Opel has always been a good car, there known for making cars that last, good engines, and they look good too. We used to have a diesel opel, dont remember what it was exactly though, when i was little that car turned heads and could take a beating, and that car never broke down. Good Carmaker.
     
  24. Re: opel will never b cool . . .

    Opel is an awesome car company. Where did you get the idea that Opel cars suck. You have an awful taste in cars and I hope you never become on a design team at any car maker.
     
  25. Re: opel will never b cool . . .

    The Opel is an individual car. They are very unique, and I think that they're pretty cool. Also, Opel has never been known for making "Grandmother" cars...
