The brand new Opel Astra Extreme has been recently filmed in Geneva, where the hot hatch will be officially presented to the public during the automotive event, tomorrow (March 4).
The fastest production version ever of an Opel Astra, the Extreme, is being placed into the spotlights once again, after it was officially unveiled just a week ago, this time with the help of a video. The clip posted below is showing the hot hatch arriving in Geneva, as the model in question will be officially presented to the public during the Swiss automotive event.
The new Opel Astra Extreme has lost 100 kg (220 lbs) compared to the OPC version, thanks to the use of aluminum fenders and carbon fiber hood, roof and wheels. Power to the model is being provided by a 2.0 liter turbocharged gasoline engine, which is made from aluminum. The total output produced stands at more than 300 HP (224 kW) as the company is saying. The engine is mated to a six-speed manual transmission, and a limited-slip differential, which is sending power to the FWD. No performance details on the model have been announced yet so come back tomorrow in order to find out more about this model, as the inautonews.com team will be attending the Geneva Motor Show.
