Spyshots: 2011 Opel Astra GTC

The Paris Auto Show is more or less just around the corner and the event promises to be quite a delight for all the auto enthusiasts in the world. Lots of premieres are planned for the event, including a very special version of the new Opel Astra, the GTC. Until the event opens its doors however, our well-payed spyphotographers managed to catch the GTC on tape one more time, just to keep our interest high. Unfortunately, the car they shot this time wears the same heavy camo we've seen in the previous photos, so there's little to go on when it comes to the design of the car. However, as with any GTC badged Opels, it's the beauty inside that counts. For this version, Opel is said to be preparing a range of turbocharged petrol engines, all souped up versions of the units found on the regular hatch. The diesel offering will comprise several powerplants as well, including the 1.7l CDTI (130 hp) and 2.0l CDTI (160 hp). Back to the aesthetics of the car, the GTC will set itself apart from the regular version with the two-door configuration, adorned by aggressively styled side panels. At the front, that incredible wonder we now call LEDs will be the defining trait of a car which might take on Volkswagen's Scirocco. As said, the car will be presented at the Paris Auto Show less than two months from now, an event which will be attended by an autoevolution team packed with all the required gear to shoot the car from the proper angles.
