    STYLE

Exterior.

DESIGNED FOR EMOTION.

A puristic shape boldly pointing to the future. Reduced to its bare essentials. No door handles, no exterior door mirrors, no windshield wipers. The Opel GT Concept: a new expression of pure driving passion.

CROSSING RED LINES.

The distinctive red elements symbolize Opel’s groundbreaking spirit. Red front tires on roller skate rims. A red signature line that splits the vehicle body horizontally and proportions it. Red seats inside. Ready for the ride of a lifetime.

BACK TO THE FUTURE.

The long hood, the absence of a trunk lid, the central dual exhaust and the name all refer to the original Experimental GT of 1965. Apart from that, the Opel GT Concept bears with no sign of retro-design.

 A TRUE SPORTS CAR.

Front mid-engine, turbocharged and rear-wheel drive. Low and central center of gravity for sporty handling and excellent cornering.

INSIDE THE GT CONCEPT.

Electric doors open wide when you press the touchpad on the roof. Inside, there are many more surprises. Like camera-fed monitors supplanting the mirrors. A first peek at the interior is coming up soon. The first sneak peak at the interior was revealed at the 86th Geneva International Motor Show in March 2016.

GT 1965.

EXPERIMENTAL GT.

Vision The GT Experimental, revealed at the IAA in 1965, earned such success that 3 years later the concept turned reality. It was the first European concept car to move into serial production, setting industry benchmark before other European manufacturers followed Opel to develop and present their own concept cars.

EXPERIMENTAL GT.

Technology Opel was the first car manufacturer to demonstrate its innovative power with a concept car that had been entirely created in its own design facilities. "Besides having a fantastic look, the Opel sports car was primarily designed to impress with sophisticated aerodynamics," explains Erhard Schnell, GT designer at the time. Even the headlights were shrouded to reduce air resistance. READ MORE SHOW LESS

EXPERIMENTAL GT.

Exterior The exterior design style is often called the "Coke Bottle Shape", reflected in the design of the Corvettes of the time. Sleek front end with retractable headlamps, tapered flanks in the door area, bulging rear fenders flowing to the rear end with sharp separating edges and round rear lights were the GT Experimental´s key design highlights that made the car a design icon of its time.

EXPERIMENTAL GT.

Interior The cockpit was functional and unusually roomy with instruments set in an impressive looking dashboard featuring toggle switches and sport steering wheel. The parcel rack in the back of the cabin could be reached through the doors, the spare tyre and jack were placed behind it, under a fold-up panel. READ MORE SHOW LESS

GT 1975.

OPEL GT2.

Vision The Opel GT2 amazed audiences on IAA 1975 with its futuristic wedge shape and sliding doors. It announced a new, rational concept car age of greater efficiency – in fuel consumption and aerodynamics. At the same time customers safety and comfort demands were growing. Opel´s convincing answer to these trends was the GT2. READ MORE SHOW LESS

OPEL GT2.

Technology The aerodynamically optimized design of the Opel GT2 guaranteed low consumption, best performance and comfort. Its drag coefficient was 0.326, as much as 16.6% better than the aerodynamically also brilliant Experimental GT.

OPEL GT2.

Exterior The GT2 makes a very futuristic impression with its sleek wedge form and recessed headlights. The feature capturing most interest was the eye-catching sliding doors without visible rails. The opening mechanism was located in the rear view mirror housing.

OPEL GT2.

Interior The interior was also ahead of its time: ventilated seats and for the first time digital gauges instead of conventional instruments as well as an onboard computer. With the GT2 Opel Design foretold an automotive future which we experience today.
