Geneva Motorshow Preview: GM's hot hatch Opel Astra OPC Xtreme Concept leaked

View Photos

Yet again, an image leak has played foul with GM's plan for the 2014 Geneva Motorshow. The leaked image has fully revealed the Opel Astra OPC EXTREME concept, a hot hatch, that will make its debut at the Motorshow.
We saw the Astra OPC Xtreme at the Geneva Motorshow in 2001 and this one is most likely the follow-up version. Based on the regular-production Astra OPC, this Xtreme car will be lighter because of the extensive use of carbon fiber on the roof panels, both front and rear bumpers and the roof-mounted spoiler.
The specifications elude us for the time being but we expect it to get a 2.0-litre, 4 cylider engine good enough for 280bhp. Even the details of the interiors are not out yet but Opel promises the Xtreme will come with sport seats with six-point harnesses and an integrated roll cage.
We will get you more details, as they come, so stay tuned!
