[VIDEO] Opel Astra Extreme gets new promo

Opel has released a new promotional video with the impressive Astra Extreme, which is showing the model in action, on the track.

The German based automaker Opel is placing the newly unveiled Astra Extreme into the spotlights once more, this time with the help of a new promotional video, which is showing the current one-off model in action on the track. According to the car manufacturer, the clip posted below is celebrating the model’s world premiere at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show.

The new Opel Astra Extreme is said to receive a limited production in 2015 as the car company is planning on producing between 50 and 100 units. Models will be developed in both left- and right-hand drive, depending on the demand, and they will receive the Brembo braking system, the carbon fiber used on the wheels, roof and hood, the aluminum fenders and others.

The Opel Astra Extreme is 100 kg (220 lbs) lighter than the OPC, and this is also the most powerful production Astra ever made. The cabin of the model has Recaro bucket seats, with 6-point safety belts, a safety roll bar, carbon fiber reinforced steering wheel and more. The unit found under its hood has a 2.0 liter four-cylinder displacement, turbocharged, being rated at 300 HP (224 kW). This is mated to a 6-speed manual transmission, sending power to the front wheels.
