Just one week ahead of its world premiere at the 2010 Paris Auto Show, German manufacturer Opel is offering an inside peak of the GTC Paris concept car and further technical details. The interior of the three-door sporty hatch is driver-oriented, with a positive/negative use of color, as Opel says.

Whereas the driver’s seat is red with black trim, all other components in the interior are outfitted in a charcoal black with red stitching. Other interior highlights include bucket front seats, small black leather racing steering wheel with metal inserts, and a textured black instrument panel.

On the dashboard, the interior continues Opel’s recurring “wing” and “blade” motifs. In this execution, the blade theme is expressed in details like the shape of the polished chrome door grab handles and the trim for gearshift molding.

The wing design cue is immediately evident in the wraparound instrument panel that continues across the cabin into the top of the door moldings.

Powering the GTC Paris is a 2.0-liter Turbo equipped with a six-speed manual transmission packing 290 horsepower and fitted with a Limited Slip Differential and Start/Stop technology.

In addition to the front limited slip differential, it has a compound crank with an Opel-exclusive Watt’s Link in the rear, and a new execution of the adaptive mechatronic FlexRide suspension.

Finished in a Liquid Metal Red exterior color, the Opel GTC Paris concept comes close on the heels of the new generation Astra Sports Tourer which will also debut at the Paris Auto Show next week.

autoevolution will be attending the 2010 Paris Auto Show, so stay tuned for some real up close and personal shots of the vehicles, as well as for first-hand details of the motorized contraptions presented at the event.
