Hey my brother in law owns a VY Calais but it looks identical to the VZ with the sports bar and everything. ESP, active select, rims. Silver interior yet it has a Supercharged 3.8L instead of an Alloytec. What the hell is it?

Did the VY's have active select and ESP though? Maybe a VZ with an engine transplant...and original gearbox? Does that even work?
Are you sure about the engine?
you make a good point about ESP and active select - that's paddle shift innit?
Maybe it's a...... freak?

Active select, is only available on the 5spd autos, i.e. VZ, WL onwards.....
& with ESP, im pretty sure its the same deal.

Then again the car could have had a front end conversion,
