EVO Magazine is reporting from across the Atlantic that sources have tipped them of an upcoming performance variant of the Opel/Vauxhall Adam, which could potentially enter the fray with the Fiat 500 Abarth and Mini Cooper S.
Speculation is that the proposed Adam VXR/OPC would bring as much as 180 horsepower to the table via an all-new 1.4L turbocharged engine. Note that GM plans on expanding its all-new four cylinder gasoline engine lineup and will introduce a line of turbocharged three-cylinder engines. And if the official word of new engines for the microcar is any indicator, we could very well see at least a concept of a mighty mini sometime next year. Perhaps the 2013 Geneva Motor Show.
