why all the excitement by the forum management even if they do call this a calibra? It won't bring in thousands of new members, infact a calibra mk2 forum is bound to be set up surely?

If that is badged as a calibra it will be the best way to lower an already low opinion by most on the calibra anyway.

Ask any genuine Mini or Beetle fan what they think of the new versions? I'd bet most would say they are sh*te.

Thats a very good point mate, both of the new versions are hairdresser's cars and have nothing much in common with the originals, the Mini especially. How many blonde bimbo's would jump in an original, British made, Mini and think it was great. Not one i bet

Agreed Angus, I'm not a fan of mini's or beetles but I respect the originality and querkiness of them both, the newer models were just bigger, fatter and vaguely resembled the icon they were copying.

Some cars from the 80's and 90's should just be left alone and be remembered for the classic motors they were rather than have some joke of a new model ruining the status of the older variant.

No doubt some of the newer variants of old models are good cars, just give them another bloody name, it's not like there's a lack of them out there ::)

On the vauxhall scene alone, they should leave novas, calibras, cavaliers, mantas etc as models that were legendary back in their day that are not to be resurrected otherwise you'll end up with a new calibra that bares as much resemblance to the old as the vectra does to the insignia :-\

well i voted calibra, although it looks a little box like to be a calibra....oh and the fact it doesnt have a roof means it shares nothing at all with the calibra.

but it would be nice to see the name on a up to date car, just a shame it could be this one :(

Here's the one that gets me, spot the similarities ffs



Both nice cars, nothing wrong with the new Scirocco but they are nothing alike. I think if the Calibra mk2 had appeared in 1998 or what ever it might have worked, but not now

I want a 'new' Scirocco in that awesome green I do.

exactly Angus!

Would be interesting to see if the new scirocco owners have signed up to the old scirocco forum (if there is one) ???

I want a 'new' Scirocco in that awesome green I do.

awesome? green? how the fook is that possible?

I do like this however,
