Vaux­hall clas­sics safe

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - THIS WEEK -

Vaux­hall says it’s busi­ness as usual for its her­itage ac­tiv­i­ties – de­spite the man­u­fac­turer be­ing snapped up by Peu­geot owner PSA Group this week. The man­u­fac­turer main­tains a fleet of clas­sics and sup­ports UK events, in­clud­ing the Lan­caster In­surance Clas­sic Mo­tor Show. PR man­ager Si­mon Huck­nall says: ‘Noth­ing will change for the her­itage de­part­ment. The ac­qui­si­tion will not take part un­til the last quar­ter of this year. Peu­geot Citroën is buy­ing into the strength of th­ese brands, and we’ve been as­sured it will re­tain the brand in­di­vid­u­al­i­ties. Con­se­quently, noth­ing will change in the her­itage cen­tre, we will con­tinue to rep­re­sent at shows and will con­tinue to add to our her­itage fleet. It looks like in com­ing years, Peu­geot and Citroëns will be added to our fleet.’ The €1.3 bil­lion deal will cre­ate Europe’s sec­ond largest car maker, be­hind Volk­swa­gen Group.
