Antara GTC (2483 words)
With the Antara GTC, Opel is continuing its series of exciting studies, each of which accentuates the new dynamic design language in various vehicle classes and reinterprets it for the particular segment.
Antara GTC Designer, Kurt Beyer, is very pleased with the result: "The new Opel design language leaves plenty of freedom for creativity and the expression of various lifestyles without sacrificing the unique identity of the Opel family."
The unusual material mix in the Antara GTC climaxes in the center console: The ventilation nozzles literally stand out from their glossy piano-fl finish surrounds, and the gear lever is ringed by brushed stainless steel.
