1999 Vauxhall Omega GLS 2.5 V6 from UK and Ireland
The four door muscle car
The fuel gauge makes me vomit, but other than that nothing.
Bought the car in August 2006 and its just brilliant.
Great performance from the big v6.
Recently had an encounter with an integra type r when a boy racer tried to overtake. He must have had a 1.8 liter WOW RUN FOR COVER ;-) OK fair enough he could have had it chipped with a cold air intake and a go faster stripe, but I have 2.5 liters and 6 cylinders and that's um... eh.. MORE
Its even funnier with a civic :-}
However there is one huge problem. Every time I go to a garage for petrol I fell like I've been mugged.
I'm going to get a 3 liter next summer HE HE!!
PS. There is no replacement for cubic displacement.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Even so, a Civic Type R is far quicker than a 2.5 and 3 litre Omega!
What about the 3.2 :)
I'm sorry, but I love the omega 3.0 mv6! my dad has one, but an integra type R or a civic type R would leave it for dust: (
Big engines - V8s and six cylinders - are the ticket for me personally, but the truth is 4 bangers can be more than capable. They are usually more highly tuned and power markedly lighter vehicles so their power-to-weight ratio is more favourable. I recall an American acquaintance being incredulous about my claim that certain four-cylinder powered cars could out accelerate a V8!
Some 4 cylinder cars can out run a v6 or v8. But if you can find anyone that's doesn't love the sound, the fell or the power of a big v6 or v8 I do not want to meet that person.
