Opel has released today the first details on the GTC Paris, a concept car that previews the future Astra GTC – Opel’s competitor for models like Volkswagen Scirocco or the future Hyundai Veloster.

The 4.46 meters concept was inspired by the Richard Bach’s famous novel, Jonathan Livingston Seagull “…and the speed was pure beauty.” It’s design was inspired by the Insignia sedan and is defined by “maximizing tension by limiting the amount of lines:” intense, very slim eagle-eye shaped headlamps, a chrome emblem bar, a dramatic low trapezoidal grill. Of course elements like LED running lights / tail lights and rides on 21-inch rims won’t make it to production, but the concept its just pure beauty.

Under the hood Opel placed a four-cylinder, 2.0 liter Turbo with direct injection fitted with Start/Stop technology and a six-speed manual gearbox.

Opel’s Vice President of Design Mark Adams said: “We wanted to express the most emotional side of the Opel brand and we believe this vehicle creates an appropriate visual impact to reinforce our dynamic sporty character.”
