Opel has today released initial details and images of its Monza Concept. The model, which the company calls “Our Vision of Opel’s Future”, will make its world debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show this September.
The Concept’s name pays homage to the original Opel Monza Coupe, built between 1978 and 1986, while its styling is anything but old school, with its low stance, muscular contours, chrome grille bar with winglets and slimline headlights sitting above colossal air intakes.
Essentially the result of Opel’s DRIVE!2022 strategy, the Monza isn’t just about looks, but also the exploration of materials, aerodynamics and ground-breaking powertrain solutions, connectivity and the development of infotainment systems.
“It is our vision of Opel’s future and stands for our fundamental values: German engineering and precision, combined with enthralling design and innovations suitable for everyday use. The Monza Concept carries these elements forward in a visionary fashion, expressing them with fresh inspiration and clarity. This car is a study that will have a long-term impact on the next generation of Opel models,” said Opel CEO Dr. Karl-Thomas Neumann.
We can’t wait to see more of the car, and we’re already imagining it lining up with Audi, BMW and Mercedes in the DTM series. We’ve also attempted to brighten the original images for your viewing pleasure, hence the reason for Dr. Neumann’s albino-like appearance.
