HOT HATCH: Opel's Astra in OPC trim will be unveiled later in 2011.

Our spy photographers tracked down Opel’s new Astra in OPC trim while it was being tested with sports chief Volker Strycek at the wheel.

The new model, dubbed the Astra GTC OPC, could receive 27% more power courtesy of a new turbocharged 223kW two-litre four-cylinder engine.

From our spy images its looks as though the new model’s wearing dark tinted lenses over the headlights, though the body is still heavily camouflaged.

We can see large Brembo brakes through the rims as well as cross-drilled discs.  A new exhaust can be seen with a tail pipe on eacj side of the bumper.

Opel has tipped its GTC to go head-to-head with Volkswagen’s Scirocco when it is launced later in 2011.
