Opel Monza Concept

We had the opportunity to see the new Opel Monza Concept online. The specialists have developed it to preview a design language that will soon be revealed. The new Monza has an athletic look outside, unique projection technology inside combined with custom connectivity and modular design that enables sustainable propulsion systems. We will have the opportunity to see it close to us next month, at the 2013 edition of the Frankfurt Motor Show that will take place in September. The first Opel Monza was revealed in 1977 at the IAA and it was a large coupe with a silky smooth-running 6-cylinder engine. It had a nicely shaped hood with the distinctive center fold, large air intakes in front of the wheel arches and a lot more.

The designers have now decided to introduce a new interpretation of the great design that first went into production with the Insignia. In terms of styling, designers have found inspiration in the lean physique and slim waist of a greyhound dog. The new concept has easy entry and egress for front and rear-seat passengers, sporty rear wheel arches, but that share the same front. The luggage compartment is 500 liters in volume, but this is because the whole cockpit structure is around 15 cm lower than in conventional models. The interesting doors offer great functionality with spectacular views when opening.

The new concept comes with LED projection technology and drivers no longer find the conventional individual, but they face a wide, sculpted dashboard that sweeps from door to door. The new Monza has as base a modular design to allow highest-possible flexibility when selecting a propulsion system. More info will arrive with us next month.
