Opel returned to motorsport with the Adam Cup in November 2012. At the Geneva Motor Show the brand will introduce a new concept study of the recently introduced Adam, built based on FIA R2 regulations. Its final development and homologation are planned during 2013.
 
With the Adam R2, Opel takes another step in its new motorsport strategy by offering a vehicle for international customer rallying which will be eligible for every national championship in Europe.
 
Special body components from the sporty Opel OPC product line, quick release catches on the hood and tailgate, as well as under-ride guards front and rear, emphasise the sporty format .
 
The Adam R2 is powered by a 1.6-litre ECOTEC 16V engine with variable camshaft phasing that develops around 185 hp and maximum torque of about 190 Nm in its competitive configuration. Power is transmitted through a Sadev sequential five-speed gearbox and a limited-slip differential with a multi-disc lock.
 
The chassis set-up, including asphalt and gravel settings, guarantees maximum traction and dynamic handling. Deceleration is provided by a braking system with a hydraulic ‘fly-off’ handbrake, Brembo 4-piston front brake calipers and braking pressure regulation for the rear axle.
 
The R2’s cabin features an integrated safety structure, Sparco Competition racing seats, a cockpit with an LCD gear indicator, control light and Monit trip computer, a central control panel, a map reading light and an electric fire extinguisher.
