Opel tuner to release organic batch of shooting breaks based on Corvette

December 12, 2018 0 By autotimesnews

Bitter Automotive from German Ennepetul, specializing in the refinement of models of Opel, will release a small series of shooting breaks based on the Chevrolet Corvette C7. The public debut of the universal coupe will take place in 2020 at the Geneva Motor Show. The circulation of the issue will not exceed 20 copies.

Nothing is known about the Corvette shooting break. The company has published only renders, where you can see new front fenders with other ventilation slots, modified taillights and nozzles on the exhaust pipes. Perhaps Bitter Automotive will not do without improvements and technical stuffing: modernize the suspension and increase engine efficiency.

The Corvette-based Shooting Break is also offered by the American Callaway tuner. The styling package developed by him can be installed both for runoff coupe and tuned sports cars. To do this, use a separate body panel of carbon fiber, which is mounted on the standard fastening of the luggage compartment lid.

Bitter, founded by Erich Bitter in 1973, became known for launching the Bitter CD. This three-door hatchback became the commodity version of the prototype shown by the Opel at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 1969. The brand’s management did not support the idea of ​​launching the model into a series, so Bitter got down to business. The basis for the design of the coupe was the prototype of the Frua. Engine – a 5.4-liter V8 with a capacity of 230 forces, borrowed from Chevrolet. A total of 395 copies were collected.
