Our spies 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 in some of the best camouflage we have seen in a while. 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.
