Corsa OPC Says Hello to You

Leather interior, sporty steering wheel, Recaro sports seats, aluminum pedals, a chassis lowered by 10 mm, ESP, ventilated disc brakes, a “young” aerodynamic design with 17 inch alloy rims. It’s not a new product of a famous car tuner, it is just the new Corsa OPC.

The fifth Corsa generation from Opel is now having a top version propelled by a 1.6 liter turbocharged engine, which develops 192 HP and has a 230 Nm torque which can be increased up to 260 Nm, thanks to the overboost function.

The three-door compact can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 7.2 seconds, reaching a 225 km/h top speed, according to the manufacturer - which also added that the small car only needs 6.7 seconds to accelerate from 80 to 120 km/h while in the fifth gear.

Its fuel consumption is moderate, with only 7.9 liters at 100 km/h in mixed driving. A big plus for Opel which will make the official car presentation during the Geneva Auto Show, which will take place in March this year, just a little while before reaching Europe’s showrooms.

Call it Opel, call it Vauxhall, the new Corsa it still due for March, and the interior sound stunning. It will have shell-backed Recaro sport seats and race-car style steering wheel and drilled alloy pedals.
