My word, this car’s name is quite a mouthful. So is it a real OPC or just a Sport? Read on to find out…
Honda se nuwe Blits!
In hierdie tye van besparing en kommer oor skadelike gasse kan mens wonder of daar nog ‘n aanvraag is vir opgewarmde sportiewe luikrugmodelle wat gebou is vir spoed eerder as ekonomie. Maar as jy na die lys van aanbiedings op die mark kyk is daar nogal heelwat. Die bekendste is seker Volkswagen se Golf GTI wat al lank met ons is. Dan is daar ook die Opel Astra OPC en die Renault Megane RS en later in 2016 kom die Ford Focus ST.
Hear ye, hear ye! Today I will dispense more motoring advice collected from the vast armada of vehicles I have tested over the years. In my humble but considerable experience, the ultimate performance car to buy is always second best – one down from the top model.
The crunchy monster
Despite what you may read in the media, don’t believe a word about performance cars disappearing soon. I always cite BMW’s 1M and Ford’s Focus RS which arrived in South Africa already sold out. The hot hatch segment’s never been bigger and just welcomed another contender: Opel’s Astra OPC.
The crazy answer
Anyone who enjoys spacious, quiet, comfortable and elegant vehicles may want to page over and skip this week’s review because it’s time for another yobbo special. If you’re into noisy, hard, cramped and nippy hatchbacks, Opel might just have the answer for you with their Corsa OPC.
