Opel and Vauxhall are holding back on the release of their new Corsa OPC and VXR respectively, but that hasn’t stopped the flow of photos on the web.
After the Vauxhall Corsa VXR came out this morning, pictures of its Opel Corsa OPC twin made their appearance over at Autowp. Granted, in typical GM Europe fashion, the three Opel photos are reversed versions of the Vauxhall with the appropriate badges and license plates (sic), but they are high-resolution and include a new image of the hot hatchback’s dashboard.
Along with the more aggressive styling on the outside, the sporty tone is set inside through a thick-rimmed and flat-bottomed steering wheel, a neat pair of Recaro bucket seats and OPC-specific instrument dials.
We’ll know for sure very soon about the mechanical choices, but it’s almost certain that the performance version of the Corsa will get a 1.6-liter turbocharged four with over 200 horses channeled to the front wheels via a six-speed manual, and possibly, a limited slip differential (either standard or optional).
The Corsa OPC / VXR will celebrate its world premiere at the Geneva motor show next month.
