Opel Corsa GSi With 150Hp 1.6 Turbo Engine

GM’s European subsidiary has revived the GSi nameplate through a brand new edition of the Opel Corsa that’ll be introduced at the Barcelona Motor Show (June 7 – 17, 2007). Practically, the Corsa GSi is a detuned and toned down version of the Corsa OPC with whom its shares the same engine wear. Available as a three or five-door variant, the GSi is powered by OPC’s 1.6-liter turbo gasoline engine, which now delivers 150Hp @ 5.000 rpm and a maximum torque figure of 210Nm @ 2.100-5.000 rpm (OPC: 192Hp @ 5.850 rpm and 230Nm @ 1.980-5.850 rpm). The new Corsa GSi has a top speed of 210 km/h and accelerates from zero to 100 km/h in 8.1 seconds. –Continued: Click “Read More…” below

Apparently, there’s no way you’ll ever mistake the GSi with its sinister OPC counterpart as the Corsa GSi’s styling is what we’d call subtly sport. Exterior modifications include a front spoiler lip, rear apron lip and spoiler, colour-keyed side sills, chrome sport tailpipe and 17-inch alloy wheels. Inside, the cabin’s ambience is emphasized by charcoal/red upholstered sport seats with high side support, a leather steering wheel with red inserts, red safety belts and aluminum-style pedals.

“We’re pleased to launch another model, with the legendary GSi heritage. Opel fans know just what the three letters GSi stand for: plenty of fun, good value for money and no compromises in everyday use or driving conditions,” explains Alain Visser, Executive Director European Marketing Opel. “The Corsa GSi combines the virtues of its compact dimensions with impressive performance over the entire rpm range, which actually positions the model in the next higher car class.”
