Today, 40 years and six model generations later, Opel is celebrating the jubilee of the popular Corsa nameplate which has sold more than 14 million units since it rolled off the assembly line in 1982. The “Corsa 40 Years” features unique exterior and interior styling and will be limited to only 1,982 units.
Corsa 40 Years exterior
The limited edition model comes with a new colour for the bodywork called “Rekord Red” that is highly reminiscent of the red used on the original Corsa A. Contrast is provided by the black roof and black coloured décor such as the Opel Blitz emblem, the tailgate opener and the centrally located Corsa nameplate. Seventeen-inch light alloy wheels in glossy black with inserts in matt grey underline the dynamic appearance.
Corsa 40 Years interior
Inside, the “Corsa 40 Years” is unconventionally stylish, just like the first generation, especially the modern interpretation of the original tartan seat trim. Customers will also be able to display the timeless pattern themselves – at no additional cost – with limited edition tartan socks in today’s design as well as that of the original. Each “Corsa 40 Years” will possess its own label numbered from 0001 to 1982, located on the black décor of the passenger-side instrument panel. In addition, like every Corsa, the special model offers numerous comfort and safety features as standard. The list ranges from the Multimedia Radio (compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto) and LED headlamps to electronic driver assistance systems such as front collision alert with automatic emergency braking and pedestrian detection.
Opel South Africa is yet to confirm if any units will be allocated to our market.
