The newest concept from Opel looks to display what a "real sports car" is made of

Opel has come out with some rather interesting concepts in the past. Some, like the 2013 Opel Adam Rocks Concept, were more production ready, while others were more intense like the 2013 Opel Monza. And, let’s not forget the outrageous 2011 Opel RAK E Concept. That RAK E Concept was so futuristic and out of this world that we knew it wouldn’t make it anywhere near production. But what about Opel’s newest concept that is set to debut at the Geneva Auto Show in March?

This wild-looking concept is called the Opel GT Concept and is a “direct descendant” of the Opel GT and the Monza Concept. Vice President of Design for Opel Europe, Mark Adams, said, “We created the GT Concept to capture the bold, emotional spirit of the Opel brand. It is dramatic, sculptural and full of innovations, which is our great tradition that we intend to continue. This coupe impressively demonstrates the continuous development of our Design philosophy – ‘Sculptural Artistry meets German precision’.”

Opel is calling this concept a “real sports car,” but first impressions give the feeling that there will be a lot of changes if the GT Concept ever makes it into production form. Sure, things like the lack of door handles and side view mirrors are about 10 seconds away from becoming common on new cars, but the overall styling of this concept is arguably far ahead of its time. So, with that said let’s take a look at this early preview of the concept before its official public debut.

Opel GT by Lexmaul

Okay time to get creative. The Opel GT and the Saturn Sky are basically the same car. So performance parts built for the one should probably fit the other.

Lexmaul, the German tuner, has a do-it-yourself kit for the Opel that comes with a PPC box that can enhance the potency of the engine with the flip of a programming switch. The Lexmaul tuning kit can increase the 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder (also in the Sky Red Line) from 264 hp to 312 hp. The Lexmaul Opel GT is also has a lowering kit that lowers the ride height by 30 mm. So if you’ve got a Sky Red Line that’s getting dusted on the street, time to brush up on your German.
