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.
Opel GT Concept previews the next rung in the ladder towards sculptural Opel design philosophy, and presents Opel in a new avatar.
