NEW OPEL ADAM URBAN CAR By Brian Foley

The new compact Opel Adam will be launched later this year at the Paris Salon. The model name Adam could have been derived from Adam Opel (1837-1895), the founder of Adam Opel AG, or maybe its a Teutonic rib-tickler in answer to the Volkswagen up! For sure, the name Adam is bound to be a talking point, and how about a ladies' version called Eve, who is supposed to have been created from Adam's spare rib? Jokes apart, the new Opel seats five in a compact 3-door hatchback measuring 3.7m. No further details unless Opel release teaser images and/or technical details. The accompanying images show a prototype on many tests prior to final production.
