Opel has recently released a new video with the Corsa OPC Nurburgring Edition, revealing how the hot hatch was born.
After it was officially revealed last year, the new Opel Corsa OPC Nurburgring Edition has been highlighted once again by the German based automaker, which has released an official video with the model. Opel says that for a Corsa OPC Nurburgring Edition to be born takes around 10 hours of work for the company’s technicians and the result is one hot ride, which can easily go against its Polo rival made by Volkswagen, coming with the same output: 210 horsepower, more than the Golf GTI.
According to the car manufacturer, the Opel Corsa OPC Nurburgring Edition is powered by the same 1.6 liter turbocharged engine as the regular Corsa OPC, but the total output generated by the unit is now 210 horsepower, compared to the standard 192 horsepower, at 5,750 rpm, and it has a peak torque of 184 lb-ft, rather than the “old” 169 lb-ft. The modified engine is allowing the hot hatch to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in just 6.8 seconds, before reaching a top speed of 142 mph. Prices for the model in Germany start at 27,650 euros.
