Even though the start of the Paris Motor Show is a few weeks away, Opel and Vauxhall have decided to showcase the first sketches of the GTC Paris Concept.
The model, as you can see above, is basically a teaser of the upcoming three-door version of the new Astra hatchback. The Opel/Vauxhall Astra GTC will be making an appearance in showrooms at the beginning of next year.
As you can see, the GTC Paris concept showcases some extremely aggressive lines, especially on the side, where big creases create the illusion of side skirts. The arched rear inspires performance, but Opel insists that it will offer ample space for the people inside.
Expect the production Astra GTC, whether it’s badged as an Opel or a Vauxhall, to borrow plenty of styling cues from this concept, but tone some of them down, including the 21-inch wheels.
Expect more details about this new concept when the Paris Motor Show will open its doors. Until then, check it out in the photo gallery below.
