What is this car?

This thing passed me on the way home tonight. It's the only photo I could snap. The front looked VERY badass, with air intakes on the side (like a Maserati) and tastefully done. The front grill was totally custom with a "V...B..." something badge (couldn't make it out).

Looks like a heavily customized IMPALA...

BUT we don't normally have them here in Switzerland plus the quality of craftmanship on this thing was way beyond a neighborhood chop shop.

Maybe something GM did?

I don't think it's an Impala or a Malibu; the taillights are shaped differently.

Hard to tell, from the side it looks like some kind of Audi. A6 maybe? But the rear does not look Audi in any way.

Interesting - I'm amazed we can't figure it out, but it does look like something potent. Look at them wide wheels/tires, quads, fender flares, wide stance, etc...

WTF is it?

There's no "malibu" selling in europe.....GM use the Opel or Vauxhall brand overseas.....i'm guessing its a Vauxhall...maybe a VXR....then some aftermarket parts on it....but afterall...its a GM brand.....

some pics from Birmingham Auto Show in 2002...see if there's anything similar....

Nah, I had time to think about it I'm pretty sure it's an Impala.
Vectra is much smaller (and we have zillions of them 'round here so I could easily tell the difference).

The SS has different exhaust pipes.

And an older guy in a suit was driving it - not the typical customer for modded cars.
