Opel has unveiled the stunning GTC Paris concept.

Essentially a preview of the Astra OPC / VXR, the GTC features an aggressive front fascia, LED daytime running lights, and 21-inch alloy wheels. Inside, the cabin is outfitted with sport seats, metallic trim and a flat-bottom steering wheel.

Power is provided by a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, with 290 PS (213 kW / 286 bhp), which motivates the front wheels through a six-speed manual transmission and a limited slip differential.

While the Astra is no slouch in the handling department, engineers decided to beef things up by installing a FlexRide suspension and a compound crank rear axle with a Watt's link. The latter "...better supports lateral forces on the suspension while cornering. It also makes the car dynamic and agile without compromising on stability and comfort."
