Opel Corsa OPC Nurburgring Edition Photographed at its Natural Habitat


Last month we wrote about the Opel Corsa OPC Nurburgring Edition, a 210HP version of which only 500 units will be built. Opel had initially released three photos of the new car but now, the German carmaker returns with a bevy of new pictures of its pocket rocket. Naturally, all shots are taken at the Nurburgring racetrack, on the old Nordschleife section as well as on the modern Grand Prix circuit.

Opel didn't offer any new information on the car aside from announcing that the average fuel consumption is 7.6 liters/100 km (30.95 mpg) with corresponding CO2 emissions of 178 grams per kilometer.

Along with the Corsa OPC, the GM-owned automaker also released some new photos of the 325HP Insignia OPC Unlimited, which can reach a top speed of 270 km/h (168 mph).

Opel says both the Corsa OPC Nurburgring Edition and the Insignia OPC Unlimited underwent a 10,000-kilometer (6,213 miles) test program on the Nurburgring Nordschleife to prove their endurance and to fine-tune the chassis and drive components. The extensive track testing is said to be equivalent to 180,000 kilometers (111,850 miles) driven on normal roads.

I dig this little guy. This is how you design a little hot hatch. Unfortunately us 'merican's don't know anything about that.

The Corsa is a wee bit over-styled, but I still like it anyway.

How hard could it be to put a color screen in the Corsa? We're not in the 90's anymore...

It does come with a colour screen if you spec the Sat Nav. The other screen deals with climate control etc.
