The German based automaker Opel has recently pulled the wraps off the new Monza Concept, ahead of its public debut scheduled for the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show, next month.
Opel’s newest creation is named the Monza Concept and it will preview the company’s future design language. The model in question was drawn by Mark Adams, the British chief of design from Vauxhall, and it will represent the next step of the automaker’s design language, which was introduced back in 2008 with the Insignia.
“The Monza Concept represents the Opel car of tomorrow. On one hand, it embodies everything that already characterizes Opel – German precision combined with innovative technologies wrapped in captivating design. In addition, it addresses the themes that will be the development-focus of the next generation of Opel cars: maximum connectivity and optimum efficiency”, said Karl Thomas Neumann, the Opel CEO.
The new Opel Monza Concept is 4.69 meters long and 1.31 meters tall. The model has a luggage space of 500 liters. The most dramatic change, besides the new front grille, headlights, taillights, body panels and so on are the gullwing doors, which give access to the airy four-seat cabin, with the entry and exit aided by the absence of the B-pillars. Power is being provided by a 1.0 liter SIDI turbo engine, which has been converted to run on natural gas. The Opel Monza Concept will be officially presented to the public next month, on the 10th of September, during the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show.
