Remshalden-based Irmscher has released details of a special Opel Astra GTC program marking 45 years of the styling specialist’s existence.
Due to make its first appearance in Geneva, the Opel Astra GTC ‘Sport 45’ features an Irmscher radiator grille with carbon fibre bar, a front spoiler, side skirts, roof spoiler, rear diffuser section and exclusive badging. New sports springs drop the car by 30 mm, while the original wheels have made way for a set of high-gloss black Evo Star wheels in a 20-inch diameter.
Inside the cabin, the seats, door panels and armrest are trimmed in black leather Nappa leather with body-coloured stitching, while the floor mats are embossed with the model’s name. There’s also a set of aluminium pedals thrown in for good measure.
Performance-wise, the company remaps the turbocharged 1.6-litre engine’s software, taking output from 132 kW (180 hp) and 230 Nm of torque to 147 kW (200 hp) and 280 Nm.
Just 45 examples will be built. So there.
