        It does not say they are built any different though, all the VXRs and OPCs come from the same production lines which are throughout the EU.

          LOL! That does pretty much sum it up, they would suit me to be honest but I fancied the Astra and told the mrs to jog on...

            Unlike the others, however, this one has been engineered in Germany by the Opel Performance Centre (OPC). Indeed, in Opel-branded markets (all of Europe, apart from the UK), this is an Opel Meriva OPC.


            surely that must mean something is different as it states unlike the others?

              All the VXR range are available across the EU branded as Opel OPC's. The Corsa's are all built in Germany and Spain iirc.

                It's journalism - all the VXR/OPC have been engineered in Germany then they are built elsewhere and we have been lucky in the UK to have some input such as Gavan Kerhsaw from Lotus did the non-ids setup of the Astra compared to IDS being standard on the continental OPC's

                      think with how un populal the merv vxr was they wouldnt risk it you have to remember they only sold 262 of them over 4/5 years ,,, and that wasnt threw limmited cars it was because no 1 wanted one...

                      im not slagging them off i own one and luv it

                        Isn't it that what they are talking about ??
                        I wouldn't have thought they would be reviewing an old car which is at the end of it's production life mate.
                        Or was it a very old review ??
