The Opel Corsa OPC is a turbocharged hatchback, set to be unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show, that is set to compete with the Ford Fiesta ST and Renault Clio RS for the attentions of old-school drivers who enjoy manual gearboxes and lively, responsive handling.
Equipped with a four-cylinder, turbocharged 1.6-liter engine, the Corsa OPC will be able to zoom from stationery to 100 km/h in only 6.8 seconds. These impressive numbers come courtesy of a peak power figure of 207 horsepower, with 245 Nm of torque available between 1,900 and 5,800 rpm. Power is sent to the front wheels via a six-speed manual gearbox.
The Corsa OPC proves that the market for old-school drivers who enjoy manual gearboxes is still strong. While handling modern automatic cars is as simple as playing a video game, the thrill and control of stick-shift gearboxes continues to hold strong.
