The Vauxhall VX220 may well be remembered as the greatest car that nobody bought. That might be something of an exaggeration, but after a year's manufacture, Vauxhall had managed to shift a mere 458 units, many of these dealer demonstrators and press vehicles. Although the public was aware that the VX220 was ostensibly a Lotus Elise with a nicer engine, it still ignored the roadster - due in no small part to that Griffin badge worn on its beaky nose. After all, what would you rather own, a Lotus or a Vauxhall. For those who are immune to such badge snobbery, a used VX220 is a cut price way to get your high performance jollies.
There aren't too many genuine five star cars that are available at a bargain price on the used market. The VX220 is probably the best way to take make our label preoccupation work in your favour. Track down a well-looked after example and you will feel superior every time you see a Lotus Elise come the other way. Smugness has never been so rewarding.
