Spy photographers have caught a hot version of the Opel Adam city car undergoing testing in Northern Sweden. The beefed up model will reportedly pack a 1.4 liter SIDI turbocharged four-cylinder engine under its hood and will have a host of exterior and interior design changes.
The hot Adam, which could wear a VXR or OPC badge, will be a direct competitor for the Fiat 500 Abarth. From the spy shots we can see additional venting near the front license plate, sporty new 5-lug wheels, rear disc brakes with much larger discs up front and a new hatch spoiler.
Of course, the most important change for the uprated Adam will be its engine. The 1.4 liter SIDI turbo engine will produce 160 horsepower in the Adam, according to InAutoNews. The range-topping Adam could make its debut as early as the Geneva Motor Show in March.
