Opel shows off new GT
1 February 2006

The Geneva droptop rush shows no sign of abating. Yesterday Alfa Romeo released the first official images of its Spider, to be launched at the Swiss show. Today it’s Opel’s turn, for these are the first proper shots of the GT, its two-seater model.

Based on the Pontiac Solstice and Saturn Sky, the new car will feature a 2.0-litre turbocharged engine producing around 260bhp. Opel is promising 0-62mph in ‘less than six seconds’ and a top speed of over 140mph.

The GT will be built in GM’s Delaware plant in the USA (alongside the Sky and Solstice) but there’s no word yet on whether Vauxhall will be importing its own version. If it does decide to bring the stylish GT to the UK, expect it to be left-hand drive only.
