Opel Speedster Has Nasty Nurburgring Crash [Video]
There's the Zafira OPC, a 240 hp family van capable of hitting 230 km/h, the Opel GT, which was like an American roadster with a European engine, and this, the Speedster.
It was a roadster built by Lotus for General Motor's European subsidiary. Based on the Elise, it was equipped with 2.2 L 16-valve Ecotec L61 engine producing 147 hp, later replaced by a 2.0-liter turbo rated at 200 hp.
This appears to be the car we have here, shot during a Nurburgring Nordschleife tourist track day. Coming out of a fast corner, the driver loses control and comes face to face with the circuit's barriers, which claim bits of fenders, bumpers and at least one tire.
Since the car strops just over a blind crest, it causes a lot of commotion as other racers almost crash into it.
