September, 2016 § Leave a comment
Designed by GM Stylist Clare MacKichan, the Opel GT was an eye catcher sport car concept. With a Wankel-type rotary engine (named GT/W – W for Wankel). However, GM dropped its Wankel development program before the car was completed. Opel Design renamed it and exhibited its fiberglass mock-up as an eye-catcher at the show.
One unusual feature of the Opel GT was the operation of the pop-up headlights. They were manually operated, by way of a large lever along the center console next to the shifter.
