GSi 16V specs

Friday, time for the vrimibo.  There croquettes, cheese cubes, drink in hand and talking to colleagues about cars.  So you even better in the weekend.

  To assist you while we present the VriMiBolide every Friday afternoon, the car that loosens the tongues must make during the Friday afternoon drinks.  This time a fast Opel Kadett car kicks it up!

Opel Kadett GSi 16V

An  Opel Kadett  car as Friday afternoon drinks, it is perhaps not the first association that you have to hear the name of the middenklassertje of yesteryear.  But concerns the GSi 16V, then it becomes a different story.  For those shouter cherish many people warm feelings.

  We also  of Autoweek!

The sixteen valve version of the already determined motorized Kadett GSi was the answer to the VW Golf GTI 16V.  Which yielded without catalyst  139 hp, and there was the Opel course over.  So they hung in Rüsselsheim the new 2.0-16V block, indicated by the gray-red valve cover.

The engine of the fast Kadett ended later in the  Calibra  and  Vectra  2000.  A powerful block that initially, no cat, even 156 hp.  But when the GSI 16V in February 1988 on the Dutch market was (25 years ago!), Most specimens with a motor with #8216;clean#8217; horsepower.

Even with 150 hp was a then very fast hot hatch.  From 0 to 100 went in around 8 seconds and the top was at 217 km / h.    This allowed fast Astra drivers with confidence the #8216;Tschüß GTI#8217;-sticker on the back stick!  Even the VW Golf GTI G60 with 160 hp in 1990, was on the 0-100 sprint-not so fast, the Kadett GSi 16V already had several well recognized in  the Peugeot 309 GTI four-valve  .  That was really King GTI late eighties, early nineties #8230;

At Opel, they were so delighted with their 16V they#8217;m the circuit opstuurden and not in the least racing class #8211; see picture 3.  Volker Strycek, yes, the current head of the Opel Performance Center, took it as a little David against Goliath more: DTM samples as the  BMW  M3 E30 and  Ford  Sierra Cosworth.  Logical that he was against such containers no dent in a packet of butter drove but we do not blame him.

A four-valve Kadett recognized by the 16V logos on the front and rear.  In the interior you see that logo.  Furthermore, it is simply a GSi and that means anyway a custom look.

  Try yet another original state spotting!

The little subtle Kadett GSI 16V Kadett is the wildest ever.  Until 1991 he was available, and its successor, the  Astra  GSi 16V, took over the baton.  He did the same block, the first facelift of the Astra.  The Ecotec 2.0 16V that then came in was not such a tomboy when C 2.0 XE block.

  But go back to the Kadett GSi 16V.  In the days when mustaches were popular and mats were you with 150 horsepower in a compact class all the male, now you need to double arriving to impress in the GTI segment!
