Astra Has Starring Role in Movie 'Vantage Point'

Saturn fans, particularly those of the all-new Astra, may want to take trip to your local theater to see this week's top box office movie: Vantage Point. The Astra, which is sold under different GM brand names around the world, was reportedly featured in "long action car chase scenes," according to one Saturn fan who sent me a short synopsis after seeing the movie this past weekend. I haven't seen it yet, but according to this report, the "cars look and perform great."

The movie was filmed in Mexico and Spain, so the Astras used in the movie weren't Saturn Astras per se, but don't let that stop you from enjoying the incredible scenes because "you can't easily see the badging, just the great lines of the Astra."

Enjoy the movie trailer below.

After one year development, an Ohio company is now taking orders to convert a gasoline-powered Saturn Skys to 100% electric power. The company, Advanced Mechanical Products (AMP), is replacing the combustion drivetrain with electric motors, safe lithium batteries, and proprietary control software. "The prototype is in the final stage, and production will take place later this year, with deliveries beginning in 2009," said Jack Kuntz, AMP CEO.
