My New Car!

A Lot-all VX220! 2.2L NA!



Rear engined, rear wheel drive and with the same chassis as the S2 Lotus as Lotus actually built the car under Vauxhall's funding to allow them to biult their own S2 as well!

Sooooo much fun! Probably a little bit faster than the EK9 in its standard form, but the power delivery is totally different to an EK9 so it's hard to tell.

Really happy with it! And for less than 3,000 you can supercharge it and get 250 BHP reliably so it will do the 60 mph dash in just over 4 seconds!

I'll chuck some pictures up of the actual car on my rally thread as I've had a bit of welding done on the EK4 and got a lamp-pod on the EK9 now (nearly) so it needs an update.

Re: My New Car!

It's a 2.2 n/a really nice handling cars you will have fun with it. I've seen the 220 turbo go and there fast, are you going to look at supercharging it?

Re: My New Car!

Nice buy matey.

They are a very capable car, I have been on track with a few of the turbo ones & they seem to go very well!

Wouldn't mind a drive of one myself!

Re: My New Car!

Had a shot of one of these, not quite as fast as you'd expect for a 2.2 but if your charging it it'll be quick !

Re: My New Car!

Yeh, mid engined, not rear, my mistake. Like I say, it's not a rocket, but fast enough for me at the moment! Had trouble with the handbrake so ended up watching it roll down a hill and had to sprint out of a restaurant to save it, was a close-call lol!

My exact car was featured in EVO too, just had a look through the magazine

Re: My New Car!

I've never run so fast! About 50 people watching at the time too! Utter nightmare watching your car roll away very slowly towards a BMW when you can't get to it!

Might drag-race my brother's EK9 and see how fast it is, the VX has no-nonense acceleration so you don't notice it so much as the EK9, on paper it's like 5.9 to 60.
