Opel GT as Cabrio of the Year 2007
The new Opel GT was awarded “Cabrio of the Year 2007” at the 77th Geneva Motor Show. The independent international jury composed of 21 motoring journalists and experts elected the roadster especially for its attractive design. After the Opel Tigra TwinTop (Geneva 2004) and the Opel Speedster (Geneva 2000), the Opel GT is the third Opel model to receive this important award established in 1994.

The modern definition of an athletic two-seater finds its form in the new roadster. As archetypal characteristics of its genre, it has a powerful front-mounted engine, rear-wheel drive, a cockpit with sporty instruments and a tailor-made fabric roof. With a wide stance, sleek silhouette, long, front-hinged hood and short overhangs, the Opel GT boasts characteristic roadster proportions.
