Gallery: Who’s the (OPC) boss?

3 July, 2013 | by Benedict Pather

Look who’s decided to join the hot hatch wars. While it may not be the most recognized car out there, it surely is good looking. Not to mention fast too, the legend of the Superboss returns.

The 2013 Astra OPC (Opel Performance Center) is a performance car of note, sporting wide bumpers, side skirts and huge pipes.

It’s powered by a 2.0 litre turbocharged engine which pushes out 206 kW and 400Nm of torque. Opel claims it can race from 0 – 100 in 6 seconds and reach a top speed of 250Kph.

It will set you back around R435 000 – not exactly affordable, especially since it’s competing with the likes of the Golf GTI, Focus ST and Megane RS.

Is this new Astra OPC overpriced or definitely worth your while? Guess there’s only one way to find out.
