Pictures clicked on the sly at the Nurburgring Nordschleife in Germany have revealed the new three-door Opel Astra in OPC trim. There were reports that Volker Strycek, former DTM race series champion, was behind the wheel of the test vehicle.
The Astra OPC has a 296 horsepower (224 kW, 300 PS) turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine which is powerful enough to produce 27 percent more power. It is having large Brembo brakes which can be seen through the wheels, as well as cross-drilled discs. It looks like having dark tinted lenses over the headlamps.
A new exhaust was also seen, with tailpipes arranged on either side of the bumper. Other features of the car are not known yet, but we guess more can come about it in the near future.
