Plenty unreasonable car makes the heart beat faster and widened Opel's sporty image.

No, with the eponym 'Opel GT' of 1968, the car did not really have much in common. Those one a coupe, this one a convertible, those rather elongated and slim-acting, this rather more compact. But it is a typical Opel with the design, what one takes lightly at first, from which one must hope, however, to like it even in 5 or 10 years. The platform, called Kappa (Greek), comes from the U.S., whereby the new GT has several siblings, e.g. the Solstics of Pontiac (see pictures above), the Sky of Saturn and the G2X of Daewoo (now GM). From this is also for us Europeans the in this class something unusual rear-wheel drive.

Through this synergy, the price seems relatively low in view of the driving performance. For a convertible, the weight is just acceptable. Something stressful is the storage space. Really safe the tank is placed in this car, but in the middle of the Luggage space ... (see video). The engine is ultramodern - based on the Opel model range from 2007 - with its direct injection. The first tester, however, object it a certain torque weakness in deviation from the paper form. It is doubted, that the 353 Nm at 2000 rpm are already there, actually typical of turbos. Otherwise, the engine gets plaudit for its pleasant noise. If a transmission is stepped properly, even five gear speeds can give pleasure, however they must then be exceptionally light to switch.

Not quite easy to operate hood mechanism ...

Have you still not enough performance, then there's from Irmscher a harder and more supercharged version with short gear speeds and more obvious charger delay.               Top of page               Index
