With its forward-looking four-wheel engineering and a compact exterior, Opel now offers its customers the Antara, a compact sports SUV. Fans of custom styling can also enjoy a dynamic new bodywork package and a range of high quality accessories for the vehicle interior, supplied by Irmscher, the car customisation specialists, in time for the launch of the new series. Irmscher has equipped the model with 20" Evo Star wheels, a 30mm lower chassis, and quadruple stainless-steel exhaust pipes. Irmscher has integrated its sports-oriented accessories in the functional form of the four-wheel model using an unequivocally stylish design language. Not only do all Opel dealers supply the full product range, but customers can now also order Irmscher products prior to delivery, directly from the Irmscher works in Remshalden.
Irmscher consciously developed the styling of the body components with due consideration for aerodynamic and functional SUV requirements. The materials from which the components were made exceed all the manufacturer’s requirements, in terms of their precise fit, durability and robustness. The designers have given this model a conspicuous front skirt, attractively formed and sturdy side skirts, a roof spoiler and a rear skirt panel, components which comply with the entire range of technical and optical requirements, both on and off the road. Components that give the body its own typical optical character, with additional drive, and a conspicuous bodyline, without negatively affecting the vehicle’s suitability for terrain use. The dynamics of the vehicle’s front section is characteristically defined by the typical webbed design of the Irmscher radiator grille with the stainless steel strip. The side view is given an individual look thanks to the door handle spoilers, and aluminium-finish door handle covers.
Entry into the Irmscher-customised interior of the Opel Antara is through gleaming stainless steel doorframe bearing the Irmscher logo and the wide opening doors. Once seated in the vehicle, the passengers enjoy a maximum of comfort. The contoured seats are all finished with exclusive Irmscher leather upholstery. All the elements of the seat system can, on request, be finished in first-class handwork quality using high quality leather, for an extremely elegant feel and appearance. Irmscher fulfils all of its customers’ wishes in terms of material, colour and finish. Other individual details from the Irmscher interior features range for the Antara include the leather-covered multifunctional steering wheel, and the central armrest and gear lever gaiter, also made of leather to match the general upholstery.
Irmscher has given this car a lowered design, perfectly coordinated to suit the Antara, for more dynamic driving characteristics. Moreover, the Irmscher engineers have given the Antara a more powerful appearance, the result of which are the 20" light-metal Evo Star wheels. The stainless steel silencer with two sets of dual exhaust pipes, to the left and right, are a clear signal of real ’four-end’ dynamics; these are characterised by their long service life and sporty sound.
