Fans waiting for the world premiere of the Opel GT Concept at the Geneva Motor Show (March 3 to 13) can already get another glimpse of the sportscar in a new video. The film is the overture for the world premiere of the GT Concept at the 86th Geneva Motor Show. The sportscar of the future will continue the brand’s long and successful concept car tradition that started with the Experimental GT in 1965. Those looking very closely will see the new Opel GT Concept briefly meet the historic Opel GT during the film.

The concept with a front mid-engine and rear-wheel drive takes Opel’s sculptural design philosophy to the next level. The sportscar is avant-garde yet puristic. It has no door handles or exterior door mirrors, and no superfluous decorative elements. The long bonnet, ultra-short overhangs as well as the bold red signature line embody pure dynamism. The absence of a trunk lid, the central dual exhaust, the spoke design of the steering wheel and of course, the name all refer to the original GT. However, the GT Concept does not simply mime its ancestor: it re-invents the innovative, daring and exciting spirit of the original GT without any sign of retro-design.
