Opel GT with LS3 engine

We have new information coming from Madchem & Motoren. Their engineers have developed several new elements that are capable tailoring a 2008 Opel GT for track use. The new modified model is now lighter than before weighing only 1.150 kg which is quite impressive in comparison to the original 1.325 kg. Under the hood, the model hides a 2.0-liter engine equipped with 4-cylinders. The improvement process has replaced this with an LS3 motor capable of generating 530 Ps. This will now work together with a TR 6060 6-speed manual transmission borrowed from a Corvette ZR1. Moving on, we also have to mention the fact that the new improved model comes with a widened body and disc brakes also borrowed from a Porsche 911 GT3 S.

These work together with six-piston front and four-piston rear calipers stopping the 18-inch ATS alloy wheels covered in 295/30 tires. You should also know that other elements include a Racelogic traction control system and also a bespoke exhaust manifold together with a specially made quad exhaust system. Last but not least we also have to mention an Alcantara trim, the digital cluster and a Recaro Pro Racer seat and race-spec steering wheel.
