Irmscher is paying tribute to their racing past and particularly, the Opel Ascona A with which German racing legend Walter Röhrl stormed the rally tracks in the 1970s, with the development of a special Opel Adam.
Teased here in a rather crude – for an official manufacturer – render, the Irmscher Opel Adam is billed as a concept at this stage, but it will spawn a production version in the near future.
It’s based on the Opel Adam S, which is the most potent model in the city car’s range sporting a 150PS (148hp) 1.4-liter turbocharged inline-four, with the German tuner bumping power to 170PS (168hp).
Painted in Irmscher’s traditional rally colors, it will also gain a wide body kit with extended front and rear fenders that make room for 19-inch alloy wheels, along with new front and rear bumpers, and a sports tuned chassis.
The tuner said it will share further details later in the year.
