2010 Opel Corsa Color Race Edition

Article by Christian Andrei, on August 27, 2010

This is the Corsa Color Race Edition that broke cover recently and is actually one of the few special edition Opel vehicles launched in the last twelve months.

What excites so many about this vehicle is its paint scheme over the worked out body. The car is priced at 15,560 euros and is available in three colors: Sunny Melon Yellow, Casablanca White and Magma Red, all combined with an interesting checkered styling on the hood.

Modifications made to its bodywork give the car a more muscular appearance with its body kit and 17-inch alloy wheels.

The exterior color theme is continued inside with special seat stitching and vent bezels, a Panorama sunroof and a leather-clad steering wheel.

The Corsa Color Race is powered by a 1.4l gasoline engine, which develops 87hp and uses up 5.3 l/100 km for the wide range transmission and 5.5 l/100 km when equipped with the close range gearbox.

There is another version of the engine that develops 100hp and consumes 5.5 l/100 km. The second engine offered with the Corsa edition is the 1.7 CDTI, which develops 130 horsepower and 300 Nm torque. This unit has a fuel consumption rating of only 4.5l/100 km.

Opel Corsa Color Race

Remember the glory days of racy-looking, muscular car outfits affordable for young drivers? Opel hasn’t forgotten them and spices up the new Corsa with an exclusive Color Race edition that features a winning checkered motif, along with a traditional, vibrant motor sport Sunny Melon Yellow color – as well as with Casablanca White and Magma Red. Corsa Color Race is available immediately in Germany starting at 15,560 euros.

To keep its performance as exhilarating as its exterior, the Corsa Color Race boast significant chassis and steering improvements that start in the full Corsa range with the Model Year 10.5 and that improve comfort, handling and steering and keep the Corsa fun to drive.

The Corsa Color Race can be powered by a range of new engines that are at the same time powerful and fuel efficient – like the new 1.4 gasoline engine with 64 kW87 hp (only 5.3 l/100 km for the wide range version; 5.5 l/100 km when equipped with the close range gearbox) or 74kW100 hp (which only requires 5.5 l/100 km). The powerful 96 kW/130 hp 1.7 CDTI combines 300 Nm torque with a fuel consumption of 4.5 liter/100 km. All in all, the re-worked powertrains – the latest example of Opel’s pledge to focus on environmentally compatible solutions – offer higher torque while boasting up to 13 percent lower fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.

The Color Race line fits the 3-door models particularly well, with its sporty contour and exciting, coupéish design. It comes with a standard black hood as well as side and tailgate appliqués with a checkered flag motif, black painted roof and black 17-inch alloy wheels. These racing accents coupled with the yellow, white, or red exterior lacquer turn every model into a winning combination. Especially in yellow, this bi-color look is reminiscent of such legendary sporty Opel models as the Rallye Kadett B Sprint from the early 70s.

The Color Race interior features special matching color highlights, like special seat stitching and vent bezels, a Panorama sunroof and a leather-clad steering wheel.

The Opel Corsa Color Race is also available with innovative technologies like halogen AFL curve and cornering lights and heated steering wheel.
