Back in September, Opel launched the Adam S at the 2014 Paris Motor Show. Today, the manufacturer announced that the 2015 Opel Adam S will be priced from 18,690 euros including 19% VAT in Germany. If you still don’t know, the Adam S is powered by 1.4-liter Turbo Ecotec petrol engine that delivers 150 hp (110 kW) and 220 Nm of torque.
The engine pushes the small pocket rocket from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 8.5 seconds, while top speed is 200 km/h (124 mph). Fuel consumption is also impressive, just 6.4 l/100 km. When it comes to design, the Adam S arrives with a new front lip spoiler, side sills, a rear roof spoiler and 17-inch wheels.
As an option, the manufacturer offers 18-inch wheels, which hid the large OPC S brakes. What’s more interesting is that the small hot hatch is available with a choice of 10 exterior colours and four roof combinations available with the “Red ‘n’ Roll” roof design, reserved exclusively for this model.
Inside, there is a black and red steering wheel, gear knob and handbrake lever wrapped in leather, as well as sport seats and sport pedals. Recaro sport seats are available too and cost 1,300 euros.
The MY2015 Opel Adam S represents the best of the Adam family, made possible by specially made parts and components, a dynamic and sporty design and several sports car-like characteristics. It delivers 150 hp of output and 220 Nm of torque – both enough to render an athlete-like performance.
Thanks to a tuned performance chassis and outstanding performance steering, the Adam S could tackle winding road and corners with ease. When tackling such corners, braking is also as important and Opel recognized this principle by adopting tailored performance brakes for the Adam S.
These brakes feature remarkable braking characteristics as well as a defined pressure point. If customers opt for the available 18-inch “Typhoon” design alloy wheels, Opel would also add in red brake calipers.
To make the Adam S unique from the rest of the members of the Adam family, Opel treated it with side sill moldings, a front lip spoiler, and an extended rear bumper. Accentuating the exterior look of the Adam S are its rear spoiler and chrome-plated tail pipe.
For an athletic feel, Opel threw in sport pedals as standard on the Adam S. On the other hand, the Adam S exclusive Recaro sport seats are available as an option for just EUR1,300.
Jürgen Keller, Executive Director Sales for Marketing & Aftersales Germany, remarked that the Adam S is the most powerful and it sits at the top of the range version of the Adam family. He noted that the vehicle already has the qualities of a true sportsman with its power potential, easy handling, exceptional brakes and precise steering.
