The Opel Gran Turismo Coupé Concept, abbreviated as Opel GTC Concept, is an Opel concept car which was speculated to be a hypothetical Opel Vectra coupé. The GTC premiered at the 77th Geneva Motor Show.

Specifications[edit]

The GTC is powered with a turbocharged 2.8 L (171 cid) V6 engine from the High Feature family, also used in the standard Vectra, but tuned in the GTC to produce 300 horsepower (220 kW) and 295 ft-lb (400 Nm) of torque. The base and floorpan come from a General Motors Epsilon II platform but modified for all-wheel drive to apply the power effectively. The car was capable of 0-100 kilometres per hour (62 mph) in 6.0 seconds and a top speed of 250 kilometres per hour (160 mph).

Influence[edit]

The Opel Vectra went out of production in 2009. Design cues of the Opel GTC were used on the Opel Insignia, an upmarket replacement for the Vectra. However, a coupé version of the Insignia will not be available.
