  • Vauxhall isn’t bringing the Opel GT to the UK. After all, the US-built GT is a front-engined, rear-drive, two-seater sports car with an advanced turbocharged petrol engine developing bhp and lb ft of torque. The biggest problem is the boot space, or rather the lack thereof.

    VX replacement is likeable, but still no great loss to British sports car fanatics. Comment on this review. The car, even though near 40 years old now is amazingly reliable and dependable. It drives through a five-speed manual gearbox with well-stacked ratios and a meaty, positive long-throw shift.

    Opel GT Reviews - FANTACO.STORE

    A new two-seat sports car from Opel that we won't be getting in the UK. Not officially, anyway, though it is homologated for Europe so, with headlamp deflectors, could be put through an SVA test. Underneath the pretty exterior lies the chassis of the Pontiac Solstice and Saturn Sky.

    It has definitely been packaged in the US, because that part of it's appalling. There's a small boot with the roof up, which all-but disappears with the roof down. The seats don't slide far enough back either, opening the boot or dropping the hood take time and patience, reclining the seats is all-but impossible with the doors closed and there'll be too little headroom for many drivers.

    Part of the reason for the bad package is that the GT's chassis is based on the same concept as the Corvette's. It has a central tubular and sheet steel backbone running down the spine of the car, part welded, part bonded. Rails down the outside stiffen it and suspension is by double-wishbone front and rear. That's the good news.

    This front-engined, rear-driver has a very balanced weight distribution. And because it wears the same tyres front and rear, it's a nicely neutrally balanced car. Shame, then, that the suspension isn't allowed to get more out of it. The GT really does feel like a small Corvette at times. It rides well enough, but body movements could be better controlled. Once the GT is keyed into a corner it can too easily be perturbed by bumps and camber changes.

    It's not unenjoyable, but it could, and should, be better. Still, the engine is good. Strong from low revs, with a sound response, reasonable noise and decent pull right through to the soft rev limiter. It drives through a five-speed manual gearbox with well-stacked ratios and a meaty, positive long-throw shift. Opel claims it has a mph time of 5. Elsewhere, cabin fit and finish are acceptable, though materials could be improved, the hood suffers from wind noise, there's no wind deflector and cabin storage is poor.

    Still, looks nice, eh? Probably not, but I can see the appeal if you want to own something that hardly anybody else will have. Import it yourself and the manufacturer warranty should be honoured at any Vauxhall dealer brave enough to take on the work. Don't expect to be able to get a bargain on one though. And both of those are better cars. VX replacement is likeable, but still no great loss to British sports car fanatics.
