Opel’s CEO unveiled their new Opel GT Concept earlier today before the Geneva International Motor Show kicks off in March.
You’ve got to love a CEO who actively uses social media “like a boss” to skip the whole press release and get to the nitty-gritty on a new product. Earlier Tuesday, Opel’s CEO Karl- Thomas Neumann went on twitter and unveiled the first renderings of their GT Concept that’ll be unveiled later in March at the Geneva International Motor Show. Check out his tweets below and let us know what you think about this radical new concept in the comments below.
Earlier last week, Opel also dropped a teaser video with a bit of an exciting proposition and vision for the company.
"Opel has reinvented itself. Don’t miss what happens next."
Strip away the red tires, throw on a set of production-ready wheels and slap on the requisite set of federal mandated turn signals and bumpers and what you have before you is a bonafide two-door sports car.
If you squint hard enough and go back more than 50 years, this concept fairly resembles the first GT concept introduced back in the early 60’s. Although that concept never was meant to see production, it did in 1968 with the Opel GT.
Whether this concept is supposed to set the tone for their entire lineup or it’s supposed to actually head to production remains to be seen.
Although Opel mainly has their market in Europe as well as a few other countries in the Middle East and Asia, it’s owned by GM and some of their products do crossover into American shores. The Buick Regal is just a rebadged Opel Insignia and the Opel Ampera is a rebadged Chevrolet Volt. It’s a longshot, but would love to see this rebadged as a Buick Riviera GNX of sorts.
