The GT Concept is a futuristic sports car concept designed by Vauxhall and Opel. This vehicle is inspired by two classic race cars, the 1966 Vauxhall XVR and the 1965 Opel Experimental GT.

This vehicle is powered by a 1.0-liter, three-cylinder turbocharged engine that pumps out 143 horsepower and generates a maximum torque of 151 pounds-feet. It is capable of zooming from zero to 100 km/h in less than eight seconds, and can attain a top speed of 216 km/h. In terms of design, the car has no handles, with access granted via a touchpad.

The GT Concept is an accomplishment in automotive race design in that it borrows the best of two classic vehicles and packages the features into one concept that may well go on to represent the future of automotive racing.
