The Vauxhall VX220 which was originally introduced in 2000, was built alongside the Lotus Elise, and in fact the design was based on the Elise chassis, modified to accept a GM engine. And, like the Elise, the Vauxhall VX220 has won praise for its balanced handling and driving characteristics.

The VX220 Turbo model, introduced in 2003, used a 2.0 L Ecotec LSJ engine, producing around 200 horsepower. This was mated to a 5 speed manual transmission driving the rear wheels.

Production of the Vauxhall VX220 ended in 2005. In its final year a more powerful, track orientated, limited-edition model called the VXR220 was introduced based on the VX220 Turbo platform.
