Opel GT Concept sportscar world preview at Geneva Motor Show 2016 points to Opel’s five-year vehicle offensive plan.

The Opel GT is being presented as a dynamic driving machine at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show, which kicked off earlier today. New Opel GT’s distinctive red signature line creates a visual horizontal split. As a concept, design language is extravagant, and a lot could change in a production variant from the seamless offering we see now.

The two doors comprise a sizeable area of the side panels. New Opel GT Concept cabin access is possible through a touchpad for the electric doors, which blends easily with the roof red signature line. There’s more scarlet on the front tyres.

The 1.0-litre three cylinder turbo engine in use also powers Opel Adam, Corsa and Astra. In the Opel GT Concept it delivers 145 PS (143 hp) and 205 Nm (151 lb-ft) of torque. Study figures show 0 to 100 km/h acceleration (62 mph) in under 8 seconds. Top speed is pegged at 215 km/h (134 mph).

The compact coupe weighs less than 1,000 kgs. Power is sent to the rear wheels. Dual-monitor setup on the side panels works in sync with two cameras mounted behind the wheel arches for improved visibility.
