Alfa Romeo?!!?

Sounds like a Vauxhall model, which I'm sure it is.

The VXR8 is a Vauxhall, not an Alfa Romeo. GM owns Vauxhall, just like it owns Holden

lol. Where have you been? It'* been known that it was going to be based off that platform since the first actual concept. Just like the GTO was brought over from the monero.

It isn't going to be the last one we get either...
