Spy Shots: 2013 Opel Adam goes testing around the Nurburgring
Opel has been testing their new "Junior" model for quite some time and now the company has set out to the Nurburgring to put in a little extra track time before its debut. Next to the series of spy shots, we can also bring in another noteworthy detail: rumors state that the future "Junior" will actually be called the "Adam" and will be officially announced on May 8th, 2012.
The future Adam will be based on a shortened version of the new platform that will also underpin the next generation Corsa. The compact car will measure about 3.70 meters long - about 15 centimeters longer than the Volkswagen Up - one of its biggest competitors next to the Fiat 500. Opel is developing a new family of engines for the Adam, engines that we will probably also see in the next generation Opel Corsa.
The new Opel Adam will go on sale in the spring of 2013, with prices on the European market starting from about 10,000 euro, or about $13,000 at the current exchange rates.
