Opel Astra OPC Limited Edition Black - No Pun Intended
You may think that we're horsing around with the controversial subject of the AVUS Audi RS6 Avant, but honestly, we're not. Now, what you seen in these photos is not an official model from the German automaker but a cool initiative from an Opel dealer in the Netherlands that decided to create a blacked out version of the Astra OPC Nurburgring Edition. Aside from the black matte finish, the modified Astra OPC also features a carbon-fiber-like finish for the hood and rooftop and dark alloy wheels.
There aren't any changes under the bonnet with the OPC retaining the stock 2.0-liter turbo engine that cranks out 240 horsepower launching the sporty hatch from zero to 100 km/h (62mph) in 6.4 seconds and to a top speed of 244 km/h or 151mph. As with the standard OPC, the front-wheel drive model comes with a six-speed manual gearbox.
