Opel Adam R2 Tears it Up

Rally / 14 Comments

GM's little European rally machine looks like a barrel of laughs. But don't take our word for it - check out this brief video clip.

Granted the Opel Adam R2 may not look like the ferocious rally machine that, say, a Lancia Stratos or Ford Sierra Cosworth might have back in their day (or, for that matter, in this) but that doesn't mean it can't get its groove on. It may be just a little city car, after all, but it does have a 1.6-liter turbo four cranking out 185 horsepower through a five-speed sequential gearbox and a limited-slip differential, so you know this isn't just any budget hatchback.

The Adam R2 will be competing in the ADAC Opel Rallye Cup and in national rally series across Europe. But if your plans don't take you there, you can check it out in this one-minute clip, which ought to show you just how awesome a little rally machine like this can be.
