Vauxhall Olympia B


Olympia was a name used in the 60s for a fastback coupé version of the contemporary Opel Kadett, which was the equivalent of today's Astra. Fitting then, that this name should be revived for a fastback coupé based on the Astra's platform.

Following the decline of the traditional two-door coupé market, I've decided to give the modern Olympia a trendy four-door coupé silhouette. It also marks a return of the pillar-less hardtop - a body-style which was common on 20th-century American and Japanese cars, but is now (I think, correct me if I'm wrong) extinct in four-door cars.

It would be sold as a Vauxhall, Opel or Buick, depending on the market.
