During the press release of the 2005 GM Omega, this prototype was caught testing. It's based on our current Astra, with a slightly bigger wheel base. Sorry, only in portuguese... <A HREF="http://www2.uol.com.br/bestcars/artigos2/vectra.htm" TARGET="_blank">http://www2.uol.com.br/bestcar...a.htm</A><p>Source <A HREF="http://www.bcws.com.br" TARGET="_blank">http://www.bcws.com.br</A>

The article says it has many things from the new astra and is quite difrent from the european vectra.<br>It is going to use many components from the astra and european vectra to reduce costs.<br>It`s like an astra sedan...but is going to substitute the brazilian vectra, wich is the same european vectra from the generation before the actual one!<br>The suspentions will be the same of the astra.<p>2.0 de 127,6 cv<br>2.416v 150/160 cv<p>Any translation of portuguese i can make it, just ask!

Images scanned from the brazilian magazine Auto Esporte- April 2005<p>Projection based on photos of the new model in test.<p><IMG SRC="http://alessdamico.vilabol.uol.com.br/vectra01.html" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://alessdamico.vilabol.uol.com.br/vectra03.html" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://alessdamico.vilabol.uol.com.br/vectra02.html" BORDER="0"><p>Copyright - Auto Esporte magazine (Brazil)<p>Some information I took from the magazine:<p>Despite the car be inspired in the next generation of the Opel Astra Sedan, at least 90% of the project is being developed by the Development Center of GM Brasil. <br>It's base is the plataform of the current Astra and Zafira. <br>The new Vectra will be in a different position in the market for Brasil and Latin America. <br>In the same magazine says that the current Astra and Zafira will receive a face-lift. So we will not have the new Opel Zafira or Opel Astra yet in the place of the current models. <br><BR><BR>
