Irmscher Working on New Styling and Performance Packages for Opel Mokka

Irmscher, a tuner of all things Opel, is offering us our first look at the program it is preparing for the German automaker’s newest arrival, the Mokka small crossover, which is sold in Britain as a Vauxhall and in North America, as the Buick Encore, starting from the first quarter of 2013. The crossover’s aesthetics can be upgraded with Irmscher’s signature front grille that places the Opel logo in the center, protective metal bars under the doors, a larger roof spoiler (which is not pictured in these renderings), black or silver side stripes, and a quad tailpipe exhaust system. The tuner also created a selection of alloy wheel designs in sizes up to 20-inches that can work together with a 30mm lowered sports suspension to give the Mokka a meaner stance. For the interior, Irmscher says that aside from the available chrome doorsills, it will offer buyers a choice of different materials for the seats, door panels, steering wheel and gear and handbrake levers. Irmscher is also finishing the development of a power kit for the 1.4-liter turbocharged petrol engine, which in factory trim, generates 138hp (140PS), without providing any numbers. The treatment for the Mokka will be available later in the year with more specific details and real-life photos to be released closer to launch.
