Due to be unveiled at the 2016 Geneva motor show in March, Opel’s latest concept is expected to preview a future production coupe that will form a key part in the car maker’s plan to “reinvent itself”.
This latest Opel GT teaser is a two-parter: a short but revealing video clip and a clear but tightly-cropped photo.
In the new video, we’re treated to a look at the GT’s front quarter over the shoulder of Opel CEO Karl-Thomas Neumann (above), revealing that the coupe’s styling is at least partly inspired by the company’s earlier Monza concept.
The company also proffered a second treat, showing off a centre-set twin exhaust design, with the two ports connected - almost like a leather band between two eyelets - by the previously revealed GT logo.
Little is known about the GT at this point, but, while its unveiling will follow hot on the heels of cousin Buick’s rear-wheel-drive Avista concept, Opel’s offering is expected to ride on the front- and all-wheel-drive D2XX platform that underpins the new Astra range.
That means no burnouts in the classic sense, but a performance-focused front-wheel-drive design is nonetheless likely. And if Opel takes a tip from the likes of Audi, an even more impressive all-wheel-drive configuration could be on the cards.
