Opel dropped their new fifth-generation Corsa E on us yesterday, which promises to bring along with it new, more powerful engine options and improved handling, but provided no details on the upcoming high performance OPC variant of the new model. Vauxhall’s small car brand manager, Ian Mitchell said the brand would be “crazy” not to build a new OPC/VXR based on the Corsa E, and thanks to X-Tomi Design, we have an idea of what it may look like.
The rendering adds on a more aggressive front fascia with red trim pieces in place of the stock chrome pieces and larger fog lamps. There are also side skirts and a black roof and the wheels from the Insignia OPC.
Mitchell also said customers can look for some sort of OPC/VXR Corsa next year and expect it to have more power than the 180 horsepower Ford Fiesta ST. There is speculation that Opel’s new 197 horsepower 1.6-liter four-cylinder SIDI engine will power the new performance Corsa, but like Mitchell said, we’ll have to wait until next year to know for sure.
