Opel's Adam Rock concept keeps its jacked up suspension and more rugged looks this time around. The Rocks sits 15mm higher than the regular Adam and has a wider stance, while rolling on newly designed 17-inch or 18-inch alloy wheels.
The GM owned brand also added new exterior colors, including the vibrant yellow "Goldbusters" of the car pictured here, along with two new interior trims, with Peanut colored fabric/Morrocana seats and door panels, leather steering wheel, gearshift and handbrake and other combining dark brown seats in a black cabin trimmed in bright blue stitching.
The Adam Rocks will be the first model in the Opel / Vauxhall lineup to get the new 1.0-liter three-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine available in two outputs, with 90PS (89hp) and 115PS (113hp).
Production of the new Adam Rocks will kick off in Eisenach, Germany this August.
