It’s becoming such an increasing occurrence that its come to a point where you can just leave a camera running at the Nurburgring for one week and you’re bound to come across a number of new car models from a wide range of brands doing some form of testing around the track.

The latest one that we’ve discovered is a partly-camouflaged Opel Astra SportsTourer making some rounds around the Nurburgring. The car, which is scheduled to be unveiled at the Paris Motor Show later this year, looks to have been built on a longer platform, making it a little more spacious than the Astra hatchback. The styling cues don’t seem to have changed much, although this newer model looks to be more aggressively designed than its predecessor.

Check out the video and see how the new Opel Astra handles the Green Hell.
