This is the Opel Adam Rocks Concept` from Geneva 2013, an open-air, crossover-styled version of Opel/Vauxhall’s bid to fight in the trendy city car segment. The Adam, with interesting trim level names like JAM, SLAM and GLAM, was first unveiled last July – click here for post and pics.
The Adam Rocks was inspired by parkour athletes, the urban jumpers and rollers who also inspired the Pininfarina Parcour Concept. Its new crossover body style is supported by a chassis that is raised by 15 mm with a 40 mm wider stance.
The look is emphasised by “elbow and knee pads” or protective cladding around the side sills, as well as a centrally-located exhaust tailpipe, OPC style. Adam Rocks also adds on boomerang shaped turn indicators enclosing the fog lamps.
The car rides on large 18-inch wheels in Twister design featuring visible Brembo disc brakes. These wheels, which are fitted with exchangeable wheel clips, are already available in Adam’s production programme.
The Fiat 500C-style opening roof folds back via remote control in front of the C-pillars and does not protrude into the tailgate. Opel has a special weather app that knows when bad weather is imminent and automatically initiates closing of the roof.
This Adam, does he rock or not?
