Opel GT reinvented

One of the stars at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show (March 2-12) will undoubtedly be the new Opel GT. If you’re thinking that you remember the original GT, with the slogan “Only flying is more exciting,” you’re not alone. The German automaker is well aware that they are treading on hallowed ground with the reawakening of the GT; yet there it will be in showrooms soon enough.

The new two-seater will sport a four-cylinder direct injection turbo engine and rear-wheel drive. Acceleration times have been clocked at less than six seconds for 0 to 100kmh. Sure to be a hit is the fabric roof, which folds down to provide open-air enjoyment not seen in the original.

“The GT is a powerful addition to our range of attractive niche products, and thereby further enhances the appeal of the Opel brand”, said Carl-Peter Forster, President of GM Europe.

The GT was one of the best-known of the Opel imports, especially in the United States, where more than 70,000 of the sporty gems were sold in the short history of production. The car continues to be a collector’s item far and wide, with Opel clubs dotting the countryside. This new model will surely make its way into the hands of many of those collectors.
