No.

The Astra VXR cant' get to Saturn fast enough... I was so happy to see it @ the Minneapolis Auto show, if it'* priced right, and still has the 240HP i might consider it this fall.

Last time I read, IIRC, the Astra is getting stuck with the 140 HP only...

IIRC they'd make a "Redline" version as well, which would essentially be the VXR. Emissions might demand a retuning, but if that car doesn't come with the Turbo engine, then it'* just another hatch that'* better then GM USA'* offerings, but just a hair below the rivals.

Which is the XVR? Is that the hatchback Opel that'* kinda aggressive looking? I think I may have driven one if that'* the case.

EDIT: Just did my own digging, it was an Astra OPC. 2.0L 240hp (prolly the same engine out of the Solstice GXP)....fun car

The Astra VXR is the Vauxhall version of Opel Astra OPC.
