2012 Opel Astra OPC Commercial [Video]
While we’re still waiting to see if the new OPC version is as hot on the track as it is on paper, the car does promise a whole lot more than its predecessor and the competition. Not only has GM’s European arm developed a hot engine for the car, but they’ve also played with the suspension.
The 2012 Astra OPC is motivated by a 2.0-litre direct injection four-cylinder turbocharged engine to produce 280 HP and 400 Nm of peak torque.
Compared to the Astra GTC this is based on, the hot hatch with coupe ambitions adds a new set of bumpers, side skirts, a small roof spoiler, double trapezoidal shaped exhaust pipes and massive alloys sized 20-inch.
