A new rendering with the recently unveiled Opel Corsa OPC is showing us what the hot hatch may look like in a more practical body style.
The 2016 Opel Corsa OPC is only available, for the moment, in a 3-door hatchback body style but the future may bring some changes, such as the two extra rear doors, like the one seen in the two images posted below. Keep in mind that such a version hasn’t been announced officially but never say never when it comes to the automotive industry.
The new Opel Corsa OPC is bringing a Drexel mechanical multi-disc differential lock, a stiffer chassis, larger 330 mm front discs for the Brembo braking system and several other things on the Performance Package. On the outside, the hot hatch is differentiating thanks to the aggressive body kit, to the trunk lid spoiler, subtle scoop on the hood, larger side skirts and 17-inch alloy wheels. The model is also coming with a flat bottom steering wheel, Recaro performance seats, OPC gear knob, IntelliLink infotainment system and so on.
The most important part of the vehicle is found under its hood where the 1.6 liter EcoTec four-cylinder turbo engine is found. The unit is good for 207 HP (152 kW) and 280 Nm (206 lb-ft) of torque, which is connected to a 6-speed manual transmission. The front-wheel drive model can reach 100 km/h (62 mph) in 6.8 seconds and it can go all the way up to 230 km/h (143 mph). The Corsa OPC will be making its public debut at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, next Month.
