The Opel Adam is a city car engineered and produced by the German car manufacturer Opel. Adam is a given name in many languages, after the legendary figure Adam of the Abrahamic religions, and specifically the given name of the company's founder Adam Opel. The Adam is sold under the Vauxhall marque in the United Kingdom. It was launched at the 2012 Paris Motor Show, with sales starting in early 2013.
Adam is available in three different trim levels: Adam JAM is unconventional, fashionable and colorful, Adam GLAM offers a more elegant, refined and sophisticated setting and Adam SLAM appeals to those with energetic and sporty attitudes. They are available in a wide choice of exterior colours, three roof colours, different interior colours, decors and various headliners - including an LED lit “starlight” roof trim - and other premium inspired distinctive design elements. Wheel sizes range from 15” to 18”, and cars that are specified with 17” or 18“ rims come standard with a more responsive Sports chassis and steering feeling. The Adam is offered with no less than 61,000 combination possibilities for the exterior and over 82,000 for the interior.
The Adam is based on a shortened version of Corsa D platform, the GM-Fiat SCCS.
- Adam Cup
The Adam Cup was introduced by Opel in November 2012. It is a rally car based on the Opel Adam. In Germany, the brand championship is named: ADAC OPEL Rally Cup and is held together with ADAC. Originally a starting field of 20 participants was under consideration, which has been increased to 24 participants due to the great rush to the starter courses. Beginning in March 2013, a collaboration with the FFSA was announced to align an Adam Cup with 17 participants in France. The vehicles will be built by Holzer Motorsport and feature a 1.6-liter naturally aspirated engine and a five-speed transmission from Sadev with a mechanical multi-disc locking differential.
