The preparer German Irmscher it takes years – specifically 47 years, more than I had planned – specialized in tuning of cars of Opel. His latest project is obvious: the new Opel Astra K. The compact on which to base their main line of business for the next few years. Thanks to his close relationship with Opel, have already been able to pre-empt some of the aesthetic improvements and performance for the compact vehicle most important of the German mark.
New tires, suspension lowered and potentiation of their engines up to 30 HP.
The first modification is obvious: new wheel designs, in designs up to 19-inch. In addition to the tires, it is possible to equip the Opel Astra with the feature calender of Irmscher, in combination with finishes of different hues for the same. In the body it also offers the possibility of adhere vinyl. At the moment the only design visible follows the lateral line, adding two longitudinal bars on the hood. A preparation very subtle and light, but sufficiently different.
on the other hand, are already offering kits to sport-tuned suspension, which makes the car feel 30 mm closer to the ground. Until the advent of the sport versions of the Opel Astra – rumor has it the return of the Astra GSi, and the return of the OPC is safe – it will be the most athletic that we can get with official warranty of Opel. This warranty would also be extended to the preparations of the engine: by touching electronic will be able to very soon increase the power of the diesel and petrol engines up to 30 HP.
How would it sound to an Astra with engine 1.4 Turbo 180 CV?
