Irmscher Opel Astra i1600 with Upgraded 200HP 1.6-liter Turbo

Friday, May 21, 2010 | 3 Comments » Categories | Irmscher, Opel, Opel Astra, Tuning, Vauxhall |

These are the first photos of Opel specialist Irmscher's new Astra i1600 hatchback that boasts a beefier turbocharged gasoline engine and a cosmetics package, among its other modifications.

Based on the most-powerful version of the new Astra, the 1.6 Turbo, the German tuner's engineers squeezed out an extra 20HP and 65Nm of torque from the four-cylinder petrol unit boosting output to 200HP and 295Nm or 217.6 lb-ft.

Irmscher's package also bundles a sport suspension that lowers the car's ride height by 30mm and a choice of 18- or 20-inch alloy wheels in beefier sport tires, which help give the Opel a meaner stance.

Rounding off the changes is the cosmetics kit that includes a front spoiler, side skirts, a rear diffuser that houses quad tail pipes, a roof spoiler, a new front grille finished in carbon and decorative stripes on the car's hood and the profile.

I usually love Irmscher's stuff, but I'm not feeling the stripes on this one.
