Description

The Opel Corsa E OPC was launched at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show.

The updated 1.6 Turbo ECOTEC engine produced 207 hp (152 kw) and up to 280 Nm with the overboost function. The OPC power was transferred to the front wheels via a more precise six-speed transmission with short and sharp shifting travels. Thanks to those changes, the Corsa E OPC accelerated from 0-100 km/h in 6.8 seconds – almost a half-second faster than the Corsa D OPC. Maximum speed was also boosted by 5 km/h, reaching up to 230 km/h.

The engine features a completely new intake line leading to the turbocharger, a new intercooler, new fuel injectors and a new exhaust system which was tuned in cooperation with the exhaust specialists from Remus. Opel engineers also teamed up with the specialists from Koni to develop a chassis that can boast innovative damping. The new Frequency Selective Damping (FSD) technology enables the damping forces to adapt to the frequency of the car. Experienced drivers can switch off the electronic stability program (ESP) completely when pushing the vehicle to its limits. Furthermore, the newly developed steering reacts even more direct and precise and gives OPC drivers much better feedback.

Drivers looking for even more racing flair can order the Corsa OPC Performance Package that includes a mechanical multi-disc differential lock made by Drexler, 18-inch wheels with powerful grip Michelin tires and a Brembo high performance braking system with 330-millimimeter braking discs on the front axle.

Visually, the Corsa E OPC features a sporty bodykit that includes larger bumpers, more prominent air intakes, dynamically modelled flancs with sill side trims, wing-shaped LED daytime running lights, sporty trapezoidal grille, large rear spoiler and twin pipe Remus exaust housed in the diffuser. Inside, the car features Recaro performance seats in black nappa leather or black morrocana, leather flat bottom steering wheel, OPC gear knob, door sills with OPC lettering and stainless steel sports pedals. Finally, the car also received all of the latest driver assistance systems.
