Opel introduced the fastest, most track-capable Astra ever at this year’s Geneva Motor Show, the Astra OPC Extreme. The OPC Extreme is Opel’s attempt to bring the technology and characteristics of their Astra Cup race car to the road, and as such, it makes extensive use of carbon fiber, functional aerodynamics and other race-inspired technologies.
We’d love to go to the Geneva Motor Show and pore over the OPC Extreme, drinking in its sculpted body lines and carbon fiber bodywork, but unfortunately, we can’t. Opel knows not all of their fans can go see the OPC Extreme for themselves, so they had the car’s lead designer, Boris Jacob, walk us around the car and explain some of its best features. Check it out in the video below.
