You quote VW's spin as your opinion. And building anything at a serious loss as a flag waver would have lesser "captains of industry" fired for gross indulgence.
Oh rubbish. The fact is, that car is an incredible engineering achievement. I don't like it, but you're talking nonsense. They had the money to do it, they wanted to do it, they followed their heart and did it. The world would be a duller place without it. Stop whining about bottom lines and all that.

Has anyone clicked on the link for the pictures? Looks more like an Astra ST to me.....
Yes there is a remarkable similarity. Think the Astra is more tasteful though.
