The previous generation Opel Corsa GSi was the last sports car of this line to be offered by the German brand. This model could be called "charged" both in terms of appearance and technical characteristics: it was equipped with a 150 hp gasoline engine. Although the new B-segment cars have a lot more power when we consider the sports models (photo: irmscher.com).
New Irmscher Opel Corsa iRC
However, Irmscher, which produces special packages for Opel models that do not require significant body changes, have prepared a new body kit for the current Corsa. He brings radical changes to the car's appearance and more. Experts named this creation Irmscher Opel Corsa iRC.
The body kit installed on the Opel Corsa iRC adds a large dose of aggression to the compact hatch not previously seen on other models of the German brand. The car received a unique plastic radiator grille with an inner frame, which is typical for cars, to which the tuning studio Irmscher had a hand. In addition, the company's specialists have installed redesigned front and rear bumpers, as well as a spectacular spoiler in the aft part of the roof.
Standard version of the model
Opel Corsa iRC additionally received plastic wheel arch liners, which make them slightly larger. Thanks to special “skirts” on the sides of the car, it visually seems that the clearance of the modified hatchback has become noticeably lower.
The model is "shod" in 18-inch wheels painted in black. In addition, the mirrors, A-pillars and roof are also darkened. In addition to visual modifications, the mechanical part of the Opel Corsa iRC has also been slightly redesigned. The maximum power of the power unit has increased to 200 hp. Looking at the presented images of the Opel Corsa iRC, it becomes clear that the model looks very attractive, and the manufacturer should consider the option of serial production of such copies as an excellent alternative to the future Volkswagen Polo GTI.
