Opel Astra OPC Coming With 224kW

Opel’s Astra OPC will, officially, rival the Ford Focus RS — or so we hear. Reports have said that the high-performance Astra will boast a 2.0-litre turbocharged engine with 224kW–or 47kW more than the previous version.

There will be a front-wheel-drive layout, and a new electronic differential to control torque steer.

Unfortunately there are no more details, however the sales are expected to start in 2011.
