Opel ADAM VR|46 Limited Edition announced

Opel has announced plans to offer a limited edition Adam VR | 46 in Italy.

Jointly developed with MotoGP champion Valentino Rossi, the special edition is based on the Adam Slam and features a carbon black, matte black or dull gray roof which contrasts with the metallic black, yellow, red or white body. The special edition also has black and fluorescent yellow accents as well as VR | 46 logos.

According to Rossi, "[The] Opel Adam convinced me immediately, and not only for the lines, accessories, [and] technology. I find it really fun with the possibility of being able to customize many variations, I tried so many different combinations: I do not know how many there are, but certainly enough to be able to take some satisfaction."

Measuring 3.70 meters long and 1.72 meters wide, the Adam represents Opel’s offering in the A segment and it will be offered in three trim levels: Jam, Glam and Slam.

The base version will cost 11,500 euros in Germany (including VAT) and it’s the one powered by a 1.2-liter gasoline engine with 70 hp (51 kW). There’s also a larger 1.4-liter engine offered with two different outputs: 87 hp (64 kW) and 100 hp (74 kW). Regardless of the engine choice, these are connected to a 5-speed manual gearbox and are available with the ecoFLEX technology package, including the stop/start system.

The interior cabin of the Opel Adam can accommodate up to four people, a cabin which benefits from the “Made in Germany” build quality as Opel mentions in the press release. Perhaps one of the key selling features of this petite car is the high number of personalization options available, including a starlight headliner complete with more than 60 LEDs that can recreate a starlit sky for 380 euros
