Hot Hatch

Opel Astra OPC Extreme Hits the Track

Check out the 300-hp hot hatch in action.

It was one of the hottest concepts – and certainly one of the hottest hatches – at this year's Geneva Motor Show, and having confirmed the Astra OPC Extreme will enter a limited-run production next year, Opel has released a promotional clip for the 300-hp pocket rocket showing it on the track. The fastest and most powerful Astra of all time, the Extreme comes with a 2.0-liter turbo-four mated to a six-speed manual and limited-slip differential.

Carbon-fiber body parts reduces weight by 100 kg, while inside, the rear seats are replaced by a roll bar and comes with Recaro buckets and a carbon-fiber reinforced steering wheel.
