That's an Opel/Vauxhall Insignia That specific one looks like the juiced up OPC/VXR model, with awd and a 300-some hp engine.

On a side note: This is the car that the new Saab 9-5 was supposed to be built on, which is part of the reasons the talks between GM and Koenigsegg fell through. The Insignia has been haunted by a multitude of electrical problems, because the car was rushed to production, anyone taking over Saab would face some pretty high recall numbers.

/car geekness.

Anyone else notice how crazy low the door handles are placed on the new model Buick LaCrosse?
Maybe it's because older people who tend to buy Buicks don't have to reach up so high.

Nah, the handles are in the right place, the windows are too small.

Proof positive . . . nowadays far too many vehicles look alike, especially from the sides and rear.
