Following on the Adam Cup that marked its return to racing, Opel will be presenting a new Rallye Cup variant of its Adam city car in Geneva. The Opel Adam Rallye R2 is built based on FIA R2 regulations and will be available for international rally racing use once it’s homologated, and it’s eligible for every national championship in Europe.
The Adam Rallye R2 is powered by a 1.6 litre Ecotec 16V engine with variable camshaft phasing, good for 185 hp and 190 Nm in its competitive configuration. Kit includes a braking system with a hydraulic ‘fly-off’ handbrake, Brembo 4-piston front brake calipers and braking pressure regulation for the rear axle.
Elsewhere, special body components from the company’s OPC product line get strapped on, as well as quick-release catches on the hood/tailgate and under-ride guards on the front and rear.
The Adam Rallye R2’s cabin, meanwhile, features all the attributes of a professional competition vehicle. Equipment includes an integrated safety structure, HANS-compatible Sparco Competition racing seats, a LCD gear indicator, control light and MONIT trip computer, a central control panel, a map reading light and an electric fire extinguisher.
