Coming to the end of the 2010 Industry Pool at the g in Germany, we have spied the Opel Corsa OPC Nürburgring Edition, which will continue the legacy that the Astra OPC Nürburgring Edition has started since 2008 .
This Corsa OPC is powered with the current gasoline engine 1.6 Turbo ECOTEC, which offers 192 horsepower.
We are expecting some changes to the induction system sporting a slightly larger intercooler and modified suspension geometry to warrant it Nordschleife credentials.
Detailing includes A more aggressive front hood changes, a new grille and front bumper.
Other items included are Brembo brakes, interior with leather trim and carbon fiber we expect this to be released first half of 2011 along with the facelift.
Today we spotted for the second time some interesting Opel Prototype Electric Powered Meriva.
The 3 cars did not have any obvious detailing to reveal its electronic powered insides but was spotted as they had no Exhaust pipes.
And on the result of following the said vehicles it was found to be quite suitable in overtaking the fossil fueled rivals even after a 2500m mountain ascent.
The cars are rumoured to have Kinetic energy recharge system on descent and on braking something which can be tested thouroughly in the many mountain passes in Europe.
Considering the finished look and the lack of camouflage we expect to see these unvailed at Paris this year.
Today the 2011 Opel Astra Sports Tourer was caught testing at the Nurburgring circuit.
The front of the car is unchanged from the current model so was left naked.
The cars detailing seems to have a finished state to them so we expec an announcement on a release date soon.
Not a lot more can be said so enjoy the pictures:-
