During the last Hall of Geneva could see to the Opel GT Concept, a prototype that anticipated a possible sports lightweight. The truth is that is locked in an exercise in design, a conceptual model that introduced many new features. But, to who not you would like that came to production? Although Opel at the moment does not confirm nor denies anything about this model, the truth is that it is something that are considering very seriously.
The same Karl-Thomas Neumann, President of the brand, has made a juicy statements recently. “It is a car that we all love and that the public loves, so we really want to do it.” “The question is what can be the approach right, by that are studying the different directions that could follow”. One of the main complications would be the platform to choose.
The only way in which is conceived an Opel GT of production is accompanied of the traction back. Currently the German mark does not have any platform with these characteristics, so start problems. If develop a new platform for this model would leave of being profitable and therefore not interested in. Another option that is shuffles is take it from any of the companies subsidiaries of General Motors.
Spoken that they could resort to SAIC, the Chinese partner of GM, which currently owns MG. In any case, Neumann believes that it has a term of two years for taking the decision, until the model loses its appeal. The Opel GT Concept weighs less than 1,000 kg and has an engine 1.0 turbo three-cylinder with an output of 145 HP and 205 Nm of torque. We will see if in the future you will reach our roads.
