RUSSELSHEIM, Germany — The latest member of Opel's OPC lineup is the new Corsa OPC, a valiant little performer that is equipped with a 192-horsepower turbocharged engine and Recaro seats. Opel brass said they will begin to roll out the new Corsa model throughout Europe this month and noted that "Growth markets like Russia will also play a role." There are no plans to bring the compact three-door to the U.S., however.
The Corsa OPC goes from zero to 62 mph in 7.2 seconds and has a top speed of 140 mph. Maximum torque is pegged at 170 pound-feet, and the four-cylinder engine is linked to a standard six-speed transmission.
