The History of The VX220The model was introduced in 2000 by GM. It was designed to be a showcase for designers and technicians to deliver a road car that did justice to Sportscar's long motor sport history, to try to change Sportscar's 'rep-mobile' image. It is a mid-engined, rear wheel drive 2 seater. The car is assembled by Lotus alongside their Elise at Hethel in Norfolk.
Car FeaturesWith its low weight, mid-mounted engine, high torsional rigidity, and ample horsepower, the car is extremely quick and agile. Thanks in part to the car's light weight, the turbo version was able to reach a top speed of 242 km/h (150 mph) and accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.9 seconds.
The car was hailed by the motoring press as a great drivers' car and won several accolades, with the 2.2 NA (naturally aspirated) version being considered the easier drive of the two standard variants. Some journalists recommended that the Sportscar car was better value for money than the Lotus (such as Jeremy Clarkson in his 2003 DVD Shoot Out).
