Vauxhall has named its first true sports car since 1910 the VX220, although the car will be called the Speedster elsewhere in Europe. The manufacturer has developed the 2.2-litre (hence the VX220) mid-engined aluminium-chassis car in conjunction with Lotus, and claims a sub-six seconds time for the 0-62mph dash and a top speed of 137mph. The car will hit showrooms by the end of 2000.
