Concept cars have always served the purpose of introducing to the public the future styling direction an automaker has in store for its next generation model lineup.
Opel and sister company Vauxhall are the latest to do that with the introduction of the Monza Concept. Set to make its debut at the Frankfurt Auto Show this coming September, the Monza Concept represents what the automakers describe as "sculptural artistry meets technical precision."
Those are big words but not necessarily exaggerated, especially when you get a close look at the fancily designed Monza Concept. Even though we only have a pair of teaser photos to look at, you can definitely see hints of what the two automakers are preparing, particularly with the concept’s frontal styling.
Everything about what we can see speaks to an athletic and clearly defined design, highlighted by a clearly defined bonnet, a striking headlamp treatment and the overall low stance of the concept. Take a closer look at the headlamps and you’ll notice a pair of blades underneath it, signifying an extra level of appeal and sporty aggression you normally don’t associate with both car brands. Finally, the chrome grille bar proudly and prominently displays the brand logos and extends long enough to sweep up with winglets at its tips.
All that and we haven’t even received images of the rest of the car.
Clearly, the Opel Monza is a concept we all should be looking out for when it makes its world debut at the IAAs in September.
