2011 Opel Astra OPC Unveiled
The big story about this car is that they’ve done it right. It has more power than the Megane RS and Focust ST at 280 hp and it as fast as a any electronically limited German saloon - 250 km/h or 155 mph.
Design wise, you have the usual sculpted chin and the triangular fog light housings , plus a set of enormous OPC wheels to scare away any competition.
The old Astra OPC used to have really strange handling that wasn’t really going to get you where you were going on a track. But the new one has the High Performance Strut suspension system to take care of business up front and for the first time a limited slip differential.
