And, yes, it will be debuting at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show, next week.
The Opel Vivaro Surf Concept has been unveiled over the web. The model has been designed for large groups of friends or large families who enjoy a variety of sports. It can host five or six passengers and a large amount of cargo. The one-off vehicle has a copper brown and white exterior finish, riding on the Irmscher alloy wheels. The interior design has been modified by Snoeks Automotive and the biggest idea was to accommodate voluminous cargo such as snowboard equipment, skiing equipment, surfboards, bikes and so on.
The maximum overall weight of the vehicle stands at 2,900 kg (5,800 lbs) and it has the full-width storage box under the second row of seats, the bespoke surfboard bracket on the roof, a versatile floor with a useful rail system and keyless function for the doors and tailgate, which can also be opened manually. The model is also bringing the newest-gen of the Opel Navi 50 IntelliLink infotainment system with the 7-inch touch screen display, support for Siri Eyes Free voice control, Bluetooth audio streaming, navigation system, Wi-Fi hotspot, side electric folding mirrors, park assist, LED DRLs, light and rain sensors, heated front seats and more.
The new Opel Vivaro Surf Concept is making use of a BiTurbo CDTI engine, capable of putting down a total of 140 HP (103 kW) and 340 Nm (251 lb-ft) of torque. The model can reach a top speed, in this configuration, of 180 km/h (112 mph). The average fuel consumption stands at 6.1 liters / 100 km (46.3 mpg UK / 38.5 mpg US) and the CO2 emissions stop at 160 g/km. Chances are that this one-off vehicle will be produced in a limited number. More details on it are limited at this point and will be announced during the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show.
