Update: Opel has officially released details on the Monza Concept.
The fact that Opel hasn’t officially released pictures of the Monza Concept hasn’t prevented images of the vehicle from leaking online ahead of the concept’s debut at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show in September. Why? Because Internet, that’s why.
Upon first glance, we see that the Monza isn’t necessarily a coupe, but rather a hatchback, maybe even a wagon, with two huge gullwing-style doors — one on each side of the vehicle. The doors are truly gigantic, taking up the surface space of two doors that one would otherwise see on a real-world production-intent vehicle.
Other things to take note of include the long dash-to-axle ratio, hinting at the rear-wheel-drive nature of the concept that is thought to be based on GM’s RWD Alpha vehicle architecture, the fact that the concept has no side mirrors (who needs mirrors when you have digital cameras and blind zone alert systems?), the absence of exhaust pipes, and the extraordinarily-futuristic interior with all kinds of equipment that won’t make it to production for at least a decade, if not longer.
Previously, Opel said that the Monza concept demonstrates its “future in pure form” — a statement that we interpret as a preview of the design elements for future production-intent Opel-Vauxhall (and Buick) vehicles.
Stay tuned as we learn more about the Monza concept in the next several weeks leading up to the Frankfurt Motor Show.
