German car maker has introduced the Nurburgring-tested Corsa OPC; a four-meter
small car with a 204-horsepower turbo engine.
Opel describes the 2015 Corsa OPC as "the athlete of the small car family". It will celebrate its world premiere at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show in March.
Corsa OPC's Sporty Exterior
Sticking to the OPC tradition, the top-of-the-range Corsa can immediately be identified as a member of the Opel Performance Center. Apart from the new, OPC-exclusive paint Flash Blue, the Corsa also boasts a new front-end design with new large air intakes. In particular, the aluminum-framed openings below the headlights create a visual link to the Corsa's bigger sports brother, the Astra OPC. A small scoop is located in front of the distinctive hood giving the Corsa OPC an additional optical dash of athleticism. The dynamically modeled flanks with bold sill side trims create the appropriate connection to the rear end.
The 2015 Opel Corsa OPC's uncompromising sporty design is continued when viewed from the rear. The spoiler attached to the trunk lid is available in two different varieties - a subtle rear spoiler that comes as standard and a much more flamboyant version that creates even more downforce at the rear axle. The twin-pipe Remus exhaust with a diffusor around the tailpipes adds further athletic touches both optically and acoustically which becomes apparent once the accelerator is pressed.
Inside: Recaro Seats
The interior also creates a sporty ambience. Recaro performance seats, which offer passengers optimum side support even in the most demanding maze of corners, are prominent. The leather steering wheel, flattened at the bottom, the OPC gear knob and the sports pedals along with the characteristic instruments in the OPC design complete the interior. In addition, drivers will not have to miss out on outstanding connectivity. Opel's IntelliLink infotainment system will be available as an option and bring the world of smartphones, both Apple iOS and Android, to the Corsa OPC.
