2012 Opel Astra GTC opc three door spied in Nurburgring

Photograph spies caught pictures of the new Opel Astra in Nurburgring Nordschleife.

Behind the wheel of the Opel Astra OPC was Volker Strycek according to the spy, a retired pilot of the DTM race series, also champion and professor at Technische Universitat in Berlin, now he is leading the Opel Performance Center.

What can be observed at the test vehicle, beside that it is being covered, are the Brembo brakes and the cross-drilled discs that cam be seen on the wheels. Also we can see the two tailpipes of the new type of exhaust.

The engine was a 296bhp (224 kw, 300 PS) turbocharged 2.0 L with four cylinders, but the OPC managed to get 27 percent more power out of it.
