Definitely a future classic, the VX200 was a collaboration between Lotus and General Motors. Built alongside the Elise at the Lotus factory at Hethel in Norfolk, the VX220 shared the Lotus stiff, aluminium chassis and most suspension and steering components.
Hence the VX220 is a Lotus with a Vauxhall badge. So if you don’t care about that – and, let’s face it, any sensible person shouldn’t – then the VX220 Turbo is rarer, easier to drive, more powerful (0-60 in 4.7 seconds), has ABS and airbags, and hence represents terrific value and a cast-iron investment.
However, many VXTs have either been used as track-day toys, been crashed on the road, or have been neglected, left outside in the winter, and hence have bodywork problems or chassis damage.
Not this one: This is a great car. Supplied new on 18th June 2003 by Perry’s of Canterbury, two owners, 44,400 miles. Completely original and unmodified, it is in great condition. The MOT history shows low, regular use and the service history is perfect. We have maintained this car since 2007 and have carried out servicing as per the manufacturer’s schedule. We have a thick file with all receipts and MOTs.
Great opportunity to buy a really nice, well maintained VXT.
