Opel has released the first details about the highly-anticipated Corsa OPC Nürburgring Edition.

Designed to offer a "rare blend of raw power, performance and passion", the range-topping model boasts a front lip spoiler, two unique exterior colors (Grasshopper green and Henna red) and exclusive 18-inch aluminum wheels.

Inside, there isn't much to report but the car has Recaro sports seats, 'Nürburgring' sill plates, piano black trim and white accent stitching.

Under the hood, the turbocharged 1.6-liter engine has been outfitted with a revised ECU and a stainless steel sport exhaust system. This enables it to produce 210 PS (154 kW / 207 hp) and 280 Nm (206 lb-ft) of torque - an increase of 18 PS (13 kW / 17 hp) and 14 Nm (10 lb-ft). Thanks to the added performance, the car can accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 6.8 seconds and hit a top speed of 230 km/h (143 mph).

In the handling department, engineers installed a retuned suspension (with Bilstein springs and dampers), a limited-slip differential, a Brembo braking system, and a recalibrated traction control / stability control system.

Production will be limited to "around 500 units" and German pricing starts at €27,650 (including VAT).
