Oh ho ho! Someone's gonna lose their job over this one! The whole internet is collectively shitting their internet-pants over this dazzling wower of a leak of pictures the new Opel Corsa OPC ahead of its official reveal and ... aw, screw it. I can't even pretend to give a shit. Sorry, Opel, but today wasn't the best day for this.


The Opel Corsa OPC (which stands for, I believe, 'Oh, Pretty Cool') and its clone, the Vauxhall Corsa VXR, are Opel's new, very blue hot hatches. They're expected to have a 210 HP 1.6L turbo, and running those equines to the front wheels via a six-speed manual. It'll likely get to 60 in less than seven seconds! That sounds great, though strangely less great than 320 HP to all the wheels, but why would I even bring that up?

This will likely slot in below that Other Car we've been talking about today, even if it is the same shade of blue, so it's not really fair to compare the two. This was just not the best day to do one of these fake "leaks," Opel. No one blames you.

And besides, that wide upper air intake looks like the perfect place for one of those KITT back-and-forth red LED eyes.

Oh my god am I tired of the jaded snark of some Jalopnik posts. Why does everything have to be either masturbatory hyperbole or decidedly nonplussed bitterness?

Alternatively, hey everyone, here's a brand new car. It's kind of exciting to see new cars. This is what some new cars will look like in certain parts of the world. Some other new cars are more powerful, more expensive, and transfer their power to the wheels differently. Some of these are made for different consumers. Here are some pictures. Best, Jalopnik.
