D The Opel Astra GTC OPC - the rather bulky name for the Über-Astra - is currently being tested at the Nürburgring.

Opel Astra GTC OPC with 290 hp

The Opel Astra GTC OPC is powered by a four-cylinder turbo engine that will generate 290 hp. This unit was already part of the Opel GTC study at the 2010 Paris Motor Show - and this study gave a concrete outlook on the OPC version of the GTC back then. Mighty front and rear aprons characterize the top Astra as well as 21-inch alloy wheels and double exhaust pipes. LED daytime running lights and exhibited wheelhouses are just as much a part of the Astra OPC's insignia as a modified chassis and sports brake system. A six-speed gearbox is responsible for the power transmission, which transports the power to the front axle with a limited-slip differential.

Some time ago, the Astra was also shot down as a GSI Erlkönig. The model also has the 2.0-liter turbo with a power output of around 200 hp. This makes the GSI a competitor for the VW Golf GTI.
