Spe­cial edi­tions

We re­mem­ber some spe­cial Vaux­halls from the past

Performance Vauxhall - - SNAPSHOT -

The cur­rent press advertisement for the Corsa St­ing re­minded me that the la­bel had been used on pre­vi­ous spe­cial edi­tions, both Nova and Corsa. Then I started look­ing at other spe­cial edi­tions mar­keted by Vaux­hall, and it came as a sur­prise to dis­cover just how many dif­fer­ent and var­ied names were given to the limited edi­tions that have graced the show­rooms in the re­cent past.

One that I had pre­vi­ously missed was the Ethos ver­sions of the As­tra F and Cav­a­lier Mk3. The Cav­a­lier Con­cept was an­other ver­sion of the last se­ries of mid-sized cars, while there was both a Cav­a­lier Com­man­der and con­tin­u­ing the al­lit­er­a­tion, the Cav­a­lier Cal­i­bre which was con­fus­ingly, noth­ing to do with the Cal­i­bra.
