Opel Astra GTC was one of the most appreciated models from the Geneva Motor Show. The new model was equipped with a 3-way audio system, which includes a "bass Radion 12" subwoofer.

The coupe will be produced in a special short edition and the happy owners will be enjoying the 270 hp turbocharged engine developed by Irmscher. The performance of this new model can't be ignored. Irmscher succeded in improving the 1.7 liter diesel engine with 20 hp, 1.9 liter disel engine with 25 hp and the 2.0 liter gasoline engine with 30 hp. Irmscher lowered the car by 30 mm because of the new "Opel-IDS (Interactive Dynamic System) chassis" sport suspension system. For a good grip of the road Irmscher installed a new 225/35 set of tires and a 19-inch alloy set of rims (GT Star Design).
