As expected, Opel unveiled today the GTC Paris concept car, which will make its world debut at this year’s Paris Motor Show. This new concept previews the production version of the next-generation GTC, which will replace the current model and will be the last addition to the Astra range.
The new GTC Paris Concept measures 4.46 meters and carries the new Opel design line introduced by the Insignia, a fine, tense crease along the rocker panel.
Just like the new Astra, the concept car features the same LED daytime running lights outlined by finely crafted chrome inserts, as well as LED taillights showcasing a long, stretched “wing” nighttime graphic.
Under the hood we find a four-cylinder, 2.0-liter Turbo engine packing maximum horsepower and torque. Furthermore, the car is fitted with Start/Stop technology as well as with a six-speed manual gearbox.
Opel's GTC Paris compact concept car offers ample room for occupants inside its cabin despite measuring just 4.46 meters in length. To make the GTC Paris as sporty as possible, it was necessary to make it look and perform as athletic as it could.
Thus, the GTC Paris was made to sit on an especially design chassis that has an extra-wide stance. This special chassis is fitted with a compound crank with an Opel-exclusive Watt’s link in the rear as well as a front electronic limited slip differential.
Moreover, the chassis of the GTC Paris features the latest version of the adaptive mechatronic FlexRide suspension. Riding on dynamic 21-inch wheels, the GTC Paris is powered by a direct-injection four-cylinder 2.0 liter Turbo engine that develops considerable horsepower and torque but consumes less fuel than expected during urban driving, thanks to the Start/Stop technology. This turbo four engine is mated to a six-speed manual transmission.
