At the 2013 Geneva Motor Show, Opel will be unveiling not one, but two Adam concept cars. We already showed you the Adam Rocks Concept; now it’s time for the Adam Rallye R2 to have its face time.
Built in compliance with FIA R2 regulations, the Adam Rallye R2 comes with a number of special body components Opel picked from its OPC product line. The most notable, at least when you look at the rally car closely, are the quick-release catches on the hood and tailgate and the under-ride guards on the front and rear.
Inside, you can expect a host of rally-spec interior components, including an integrated safety structure, HANS-compatible SPARCO Competition racing seats, a cockpit with an LCD gear indicator, control light and MONIT trip computer, a central control panel, a map reading light and an electric fire extinguisher.
As far as the engine is concerned, the Adam Rallye R2 is powered by a 1.6-liter ECOTEC 16V engine with variable camshaft phasing that produces 185 horsepower and 140 pound-feet of torque when adjusted to its racing configurations. In addition, the rally car also carries an adjustable chassis setup with asphalt and gravel settings, providing the kind of traction and handling needed for a rally car. The car’s brakes are taken care of by a hydraulic ‘fly-off’ handbrake to go with Brembo four-piston front brake calipers.
