Spying photographers have got the best pictures yet of the new three-door Opel Astra in OPC trim. The so-called Astra GTC OPC could get 27 per cent more power courtesy of a turbocharged 300hp 2.0L four-cylinder engine. It looks to be wearing dark tinted lenses over the headlights, though much else is covered up. Large, Brembo brakes can be seen through the wheels, as well as cross-drilled discs. A new exhaust was also spotted, with tailpipes on either side of the bumper. A date for its release is yet to be revealed.
