Vauxhall has priced the hot Adam Grand Slam from £16,995 ($25,807 USD)in the United Kingdom, Auto Express reports. The Adam Grand Slam was formerly referred to as the Adam S, until Vauxhall announced a name change for the car in late December. The range-topping Adam is still called the Adam S outside of the United Kingdom, however.
The Adam Grand Slam utilizes Opel’s 1.4-liter turbocharged EcoTec engine and a six-speed manual transmission to deliver 148 horsepower and 162 lb-ft of torque to its front-wheels. This results in a 0-62 mph sprint of 8.5 seconds and a top speed of 124 mph. There’s also a front and side lower lip kit, a sporty rear diffuser and hatch spoiler, sporty 18-inch alloy wheels, VXR brakes and optional Recaro seats.
The Adam S’ name was changed to Grand Slam in Britain to prevent consumers confusing the car with the previous-generation Corsa, which was available in base-level ‘Corsa S’ trim. The Grand Slam will go on sale this March, with Vauxhall projecting sales of around 750 units per year.
