150kW boost for Corsa OPC

2008-05-05 08:51
Steinmetz, the German based Opel tuner, has attached some body tupperware and boosted power for Opel's roguish little Corsa OPC.

In standard trim the Corsa OPC is hardly a model of styling understatement. Steinmetz has decided it needed an even more outlandish urban race warrior appearance.

A new honeycomb grille is added, side strips in sliver or anthracite round off the flanks. OPC acolytes should notice the additional round-tailpipes which flank the standard triangular centre exhaust as a key rear styling differentiation. A two-piece front spoiler and an aluminium gas cap round off the styling mods.

Unique mags are available in 16-to-19-inch sizes too enhancing the OPC stance, especially seeing as a 30mm lowering kit is part of the conversion.

Power is boosted by an exhaust system upgrade which hikes power from 141- to 150kW. Steinmetz adds stainless-steel floor mats to round off the conversion and add a racing aesthetic to the interior.
