|New Opel ADAM S: Turbocharged pocket rocket|
Drivers who like a somewhat sportier drive can find a 110 kW/150 hp, 1.4 liter Turbo ECOTEC unit under the hood. In addition, a specially tuned chassis and the OPC braking system ensure that the pocket rocket stays on the road even at high speeds. The ADAM S’ sporting pedigree is plain to see – the designers have given it a slick styling both on the in and outside. The racy small car completes the ADAM model range with the crossover ADAM ROCKS having already been introduced. With the ADAM S, Opel have once again shown how versatile the ADAM family is, always according to the principle: individual, exciting and strong. The ADAM S will give the best connected small car and individualization champion another dimension with its performance.
Turbocharged pocket rocket
With 110 kW/150 hp and 220 Nm of torque on tap, the special new version of the 1.4 liter Turbo ECOTEC unit in the Opel ADAM S boasts a specific power output exceeding 100 hp/liter. It delivers 50 percent more horsepower and 70 percent more torque than its naturally-aspirated 1.4 liter stable-mate. Combined to a six-speed manual gearbox, the new turbocharged engine impresses with outstanding responsiveness and a torque plateau that suits a spirited style of driving, making curvy roads the ideal terrain for the little sports star. Opel ADAM S accelerates from 0 to 100 in only 8.5 seconds. Top speeds of well over 200 km/h are possible with the engine.
Opel ADAM S’s 1.4 Turbo engine is naturally fitted with Start/Stop technology and the engine already meets the future Euro 6 emission standards. The dual cam phasing for continuously variable valve timing and a turbocharger integrated within the exhaust manifold for reduced weight and compact packaging. Numerous weight-saving features include a cast iron block with a hollow frame structure, hollow-cast camshafts and a plastic intake manifold. In this arrangement the sportsman of the Opel ADAM family makes do with a mere 6.4 liters of gasoline per 100 kilometers.
The sporty driving characteristics are enhanced by the specially tuned performance chassis, developed especially for the Opel ADAM S, and direct, sharp performance steering. But the pocket rocket can also handle itself in case of an emergency – large OPC S brakes, custom-made for the various wheel sizes, ensure excellent braking characteristics. The 18-inch wheels with propeller design rims are fitted with 225/35 R 18 tires and the red brake calipers can be seen. Alternatively, 17-inch wheels are available.

The crisp design of the ADAM S leaves no doubt what it has under the hood either. The front lip spoiler, side sill moldings and an extended rear bumper cut-out with a visible, bold exhaust tailpipe characterize the bodywork or the muscular sportsman. A total of ten body paint choices and four further roof combinations are available with the ‚Red ʼn‘ Roll‘ roof design reserved exclusively for ADAM S customers. The rear spoiler, which creates sufficient downforce, and the special ADAM S logo on the C pillars complete the look. Those who want an even more impressive entry can individualize the roof and bodywork with additional special “S” graphics.

Inside the vehicle, the driver and front passenger can choose between four different seat arrangements, three of which are exclusively available for this ADAM variant, including the Recaro Performance seats in Morrocana or nappa leather. The interior reflects the ‚Red ʼn‘ Roll‘ design in many ways, for example with the optional leather package including black and red steering wheel, gear knob and handbrake in leather or the red and white lighting for the instrument panels and doors. This is all rounded off by small details such as special ADAM S floor mats or the key in the grey-black-red ADAM S design. The optional checkered flag headliner design creates additional racing flair.
