Wasn't this foremost a Vauxhall?[edit]

This article used to be filed under Vauxhall VX220, whilst other Vauxhall/Opel articles were generally filed under Opel to cater for the international nature of European-market GM cars. However, the VX220 was a Vauxhall special project, this is a case where the Opel was a badge-engineered Vauxhall. Not the other way around. Suggest moving back to Vauxhall VX220, with the Opel Speedster page redirecting to Vauxhall VX220. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 80.6.35.235 (talk) 01:52, 20 March 2012 (UTC)

How can this car be a special project (source please), when Vauxhall stopped designing its own cars since the 70s and has no R&D facilities in the UK? This car is an Opel with R&D from Ruesselsheim, Germany and therefore this article should be called Opel Speedster instead of Vauxhall VX220. Vauxhalls are rebadged versions of Opel cars with right hand drive in the UK. Here you can inform yourself about the Speedster/VX220: [1] --Imoso (talk) 00:23, 22 March 2012 (UTC)

As Imoso has been blocked for messing up all the Opel articles, howsabout a more serious response on the question of whether the Vauxhall VX220 should be filed under "Vauxhall VX220" as it was a Vauxhall-led project (nb Imoso's link does not actually relate to this question), or if it should remain under Opel Speedster as other GM Europe articles are. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 80.6.35.235 (talk) 00:00, 4 November 2012 (UTC)

Considering that it was designed by Lotus, and built by Lotus, a British company , in Britain, I am of the opinion that Vauxhall is a more accurate name than Opel. As far as I'm aware, much of the R&D was done in the UK. Astonmartini (?) 07:10, 30 January 2013 (UTC)
