Hear the acronym OPC transports us immediately to the versions more performance of Opel. Power and fun is what we offer, especially the Opel Corsa OPC and Opel Astra OPC. The Insignia OPC will be a sedan four-wheel drive capable of taking us to pace very high, but in the end it is a saloon very heavy, so they lose a point of sportsmanship.
The Opel Astra K has already been out for over a year in our market, so you should not wait much longer for the arrival of their corresponding OPC version. According to our colleagues of Motor1, the Opel Astra OPC will be in 2017, is expected during the Frankfurt motor show. Until now, the versions OPC of the compact German had had bodywork of 3 doors, although it seems that in this new generation there shall be no body of this sort being, therefore, exclusively 5-door.
What is a mystery is to know what will be the propeller that will be mounted this new Opel Astra OPC. Apparently Opel would have problems in installing a engine “big” dimensions in the engine bay for reasons of space. In addition, the brand declared some time ago his intention of riding only engines that did not exceed 1,600 cc in this model, although we do not know whether this variant might make an exception. In fact, the more powerful variant is a 1.6 Turbo 200 CV.
The Opel Astra OPC that are still marketed belongs to the previous generation, fitting a powerful 2-liter Turbo that reaches up to 280 HP and 400 Nm. It is more than likely that the mark will use a 1.6 Turbo on boosted, though not to exceed by far the figure of power over the current model. However, yes it will be faster by the remarkable weight loss from one generation to another, which, according to versions, is between 120 and 200 pounds.
