The Bowtie Brigade is showing the Meriva SS, Astra Sedan SS and Corsa Sedan SS at the Sao Paolo Autosalon, hoping that a few cosmetic alterations (mesh grille, 360º tints, bangin' 16-inch alloys) will confuse buyers into thinking these econolumps have serious performance abilities. I also want to be the first one to call chrome mirrors as a new OEM and aftermarket trend, whereby mirror covers replace HIDs as thieves' target of choice. My favorite thing about this article is its characterization of Chevrolet, which has, unbeknownst to everyone, become a "specialist in transforming dreams into reality." Hmmm, I thought that was David Copperfield's responsibility.
