Ordering is now open for the sexy little Opel ADAM city car before it hits European dealerships in January 2013. Prices for the ADAM start at €11,500 (including VAT) in Germany for the entry-level version featuring a 51 kW/70 hp 1.2L gasoline engine. In the United Kingdom, the Vauxhall ADAM will start at £11,255 for the JAM variant. The ADAM GLAM will command £12,650 and £13,150 for the ADAM SLAM. The Opel press release didn’t specify pricing for individual trim levels.
For us ‘Mericans, the price can also be read as $14,853 when converted from the Euro.
Other powertplant choices consist of a 1.4L 64 kW/87 hp motor and a 1.4L – 74kW/100 hp motor, mated to a five-speed manual gearbox.
Interesting interior options, such as a unique “starlight headliner” complete with more than 60 LED lights re-creates a starlit sky at night and can be ordered for €380. An IntelliLink (*looks at Buick, GMC*) infotainment system is another 300, while Advanced Park Assist and the combined side blind spot alert is 580.
If you’re into color choices, the ADAM will offer 12 of them. The hues feature names like “I’ll be Black”, “Papa don’t Peach”, “Purple Fiction”, “James Blonde”, ‘”Saturday White Fever”, “White my Fire”, “Men in Brown” and ‘”Buzz Lightgreen.” We’re not making this up.
What’s more, bespoke packages will be offered, and deliver unique combinations of colour and design to the roof, wheels, exterior mirror caps, logo bar and interior trim. They are described in the Vauxhall press release as “Two-Tone” black and white pack, a “Twisted pack” and the “Extreme pack”.
