2015 Opel Astra OPC Extreme

Opel has revealed its 2015 Astra OPC Extreme, debuting at this year’s Geneva Motor Show.

The car is lighter and will have an upgraded engine.

This is definitely a true race car after being described as the fastest road going Astra ever.
2015-Opel-Astra-OPC-Extreme-nice-A
Engine

The Astra OPC Extreme is powered by 4 cylinder 2.0liter turbo-charged engine. Made of all aluminum, it delivers 300 horsepower matched with a 6-speed manual gearbox and limited-slip differential.

This is the most powerful 4 cylinder that Opel has created.

Performance

Stopping power comes from Brembo’s 6-piston brake system together with the 370 mm front discs located in the rear wheels.

That being said, this vehicle should be faster than the previous model, the Astra OPC, which sprints from 0 to 60 mph in 5.9 seconds and has top speed of about 155 mph. For those who love fast cars, this is definitely worth a look.

2015-Opel-Astra-OPC-Extreme-decals-galore-B

Exterior

This car is 100 kg lighter than the normal OPC and has made great use of carbon fiber material. The lightweight material has been used on the roof, hood, and wheels which are actually 20 kg lighter than the normal alloys.

The fenders are made from aluminum, making it lighter. OPC Extreme rides on 19 inch alloy wheels wrapped around by 245/35 tires.

Interior

The stripped interior features a safety roll-bar instead of regular rear seats. In the front, Recaro bucket seats have been installed; these seats will have Schroth 6-point safety belts.

The carbon fiber reinforced steering wheel is covered in suede material with yellow stitching.
