Vauxhall/Opel's design chief Mark Adams describes the GTC Paris as, 'bold, pure and iconic', and it's being said that a production version will not stray far from the lines of the concept.
"Vauxhall's signature blade mimics that on the Insignia and creates a fine, tense crease along the rocker panel," it says. "This combines with a second line running from the door handle to the rear of the car, emphasising both a fine undercut and broad shoulder. A third line following the silhouette of the roof is finished in fine brushed aluminium accentuating the window graphic and leads to a sharply accented integrated spoiler.
"At the rear, the imposing features of the concept are enhanced with LED tail lights, showcasing a long, stretched 'wing' night time graphic."
A four-cylinder, 2.0-litre turbocharged engine, with direct petrol injection and Start/Stop technology is mated to a six-speed manual gearbox to complete the package, and more details about the GTC Paris Concept will be revealed before the Paris Motor Show.
