Vauxhall Calibra - for the fans A car for every day!

The Vauxhall Calibra is back! Hot on the heels of our news that Ford is resurrecting the Capri as a Focus-based coupe comes confirmation that Vauxhall will create a successor to its popular Nineties two-door.

"I believe we should have one, so we will have one," GM Europe chief Nick Reilly told Auto Express. As overall boss of Vauxhall and Opel, Reilly has the last word on what goes into production.
