General Motors launched the car in America where it is as the Pontiac Solstice and the Saturn It became available in Europe as the GT from about May 2007. In they have a 2.4 litre version as well as the much 2.0 litre version badged as The Sky Redline. The Opel GT comes in one only – the 2.0 litre version!

Speccing is easy everything standard apart one optional extra – seats and stereo upgrade.

We first became aware of the car pictures on the internet in 2006 and in the year we went to the Paris Show to see it in the flesh.

The generation Opel GT brings new to the sometimes rather conservative of the automobile, with its dynamic alternating sharp edges and surfaces. Everything behind the GT legend is there: the long a powerful front-mounted engine, drive, a passenger compartment with sporty instruments and a hood. All the basics are respected!

There are also air vents the front wheels, whilst the above the rear lid bring to those of the Ferrari Rossa car. The chrome radiator aluminium wheels and double further emphasise the sportiness of high-powered car. In the Opel GT you are close to the ground, with a lever placed in the continuation of forearm.

But its interior comfort makes it possible to envisage journeys (if your case is not too since the boot capacity is 66 litres!), as witnessed by its beautiful seats with topstitching and its suspension.
