Earlier this month Opel unveiled the all-new 2015 Corsa E, a model that showed up with a new design inspired by the smaller Adam. Besides the new design, the 2015 Corsa E also revealed its 1.0-liter three-cylinder Ecotec Direct Injection Turbo engine that is available in two output configurations, delivering 90 hp (66 kW) and 115 hp (85 kW) as well as 170 Nm of torque from 1,800 rpm.

Still, there are lots of customers waiting for the OPC version of the brand new Corsa. This new model will arrive in 2015 and will be powered by a 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that will generate around 200 hp.

As a result, it will be capable to achieve a top speed of over 225 km/h (140 mph). Those who don’t know, its predecessor was powered by the same engine that delivered 192 hp and was capable to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 7.2 seconds, while top speed was 225 km/h or 140 mph.

Regarding the design, we expect the 2015 Opel Corsa E OPC to get a new aerodynamic kit consisting in a new front bumper, side sills, a rear roof spoiler, a new rear bumper but also the chromed tail pipe.

The interior will feature Recaro seats, an OPC steering wheel and gear knob, instrument dials with OPC logo and new floor mats.
