The 2015 Opel Corsa OPC made its world-public debut at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, but the car is ready to hit the streets. And Opel is proud to announce the car rings in less expensive than the outgoing Corsa OPC.
Opel announced today the hot-hatch will start at €24,395, or $26,152 USD. Considering that lump sum buys you a 207 hp 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder with 206 lb-ft of torque, that’s quite a proposition.
“Our OPC models are the dynamic spearheads of our car ranges. They reflect Opel’s sporting tradition, epitomize German engineering, emotional design and distinctive driving dynamics. The new Corsa OPC impressively proves how high our engineers have set the bar in the sporty small car segment. It shows exactly what it is made of on winding mountainous roads and even on the racetrack, and it is so much fun that you do not want to get out of it anymore. Typical OPC – simply pure passion,” enthused Opel Group CEO Dr. Karl-Thomas Neumann.
Opel is enthusiastic about the latest engineering found in the 2015 Corsa OPC, especially when examining the FSD sport chassis. Frequency Selective Dampening allows for balancing of the athleticism desired, but the comfort needed in daily driving situations.
An optional sport package will bump that base price up, though. The sport package offers up a multi-disc differential, 18-inch wheels with sticky Michelin rubber and Brembo high-performance brakes. These additions will have you ready to tackle the Nürburgring in no time at all.
Now if only we found this performance bargain residing on U.S. shores. The Focus ST and upcoming RS could use some company, wouldn’t you concur?
