The brand new Opel Corsa OPC has been officially unveiled by the German based automaker, one day after leaking out over the web.
Opel’s newest addition to the OPC lineup is this Corsa model which has been officially unveiled recently. The B-segment hot hatch has received an aggressive body kit, with different front and rear bumpers, larger side skirts, larger air intakes, a subtle scoop on the hood, the trunk lid or the optional larger spoiler at the rear and several other goodies. The vehicle is riding on 17-inch alloy wheels, wrapped in 214/45 tires, made by Michelin, and it has 308 mm front brake discs and a Remus dual exhaust system.
For some extra cash, Opel can equip the Corsa OPC with the optional Performance Package, which is adding the 18-inch wheels with Michelin tires, a stiffer chassis setup, a Drexel mechanical multi-disc differential lock, a Brembo braking system with larger 330 mm front discs and that’s about all. The interior design of the hot hatch is bringing the flat bottom steering wheel wrapped in leather, the Recaro performance seats with side support, the IntelliLink infotainment system or the OPC gear knob.
Under its hood, the 2016 Opel Corsa OPC has a 1.6 liter Turbo EcoTec four-cylinder engine, which is producing a total output of 207 HP (152 kW) and 280 Nm (206 lb-ft) of torque, connected to a 6-speed manual transmission with short ratios, sending power to the front wheels. From 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph), the Corsa OPC needs 6.8 seconds and top speed stands at 230 km/h (143 mph). The average fuel consumption is 7.5L / 100km (37.6 mpg UK / 31.3 mpg US) and the CO2 emissions are 174 g/km. The model will be making its public debut at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, in March.
