Of course, that doesn't mean we can't admire it from afar.
To help us do that (and to whet the appetites of those who will actually be able to buy it), Opel has offered up a batch of desktop wallpaper images for your computer.
Click on each image below to view them full-size.
The images have been made to suit desktop resolutions of 1600 x 1200 pixels, so while they won't suit everyone's needs, they're sure nice enough to look at.
Now we return you to your regularly scheduled 2010 Opel Astra envy.
