Rüsselsheim, 8 April 2015: Anything but cute and definitely not slow – the brand new Opel ADAM ROCKS S will celebrate its world premiere at the International Amsterdam Motorshow (AutoRAI, April 17 to 26). With its sturdy, masculine appearance, the Swing Top canvas roof and powerful 1.4-liter turbo ECOTEC engine the 3.75 meters long ADAM ROCKS S will appeal to customers who want to combine dynamic driving outside of the city with thirst for adventure, open air feeling and stylish design.
The powerful 110 kW/150 hp ECOTEC engine with Start/Stop makes do with a mere 5.9 liters of gasoline per 100 kilometers in the combined cycle, which is equivalent to 139 g/km of CO2. It is fitted with a short ratio 6-speed gearbox. Accelerations are those of a small sporty car – 100 km/h are reached in 8.5 seconds – but the ADAM ROCKS S mainly impresses with great elasticity: it makes the transition for 80 to 120 km/h in fifth gear in just 7.9 seconds. Top speed is 210 km/h.
Thus, the ADAM ROCKS S is perfectly equipped for fast and sporty excursions. Furthermore, a specially tuned sport chassis, lowered by 15 mm compared to the ADAM ROCKS, and a direct sporty steering increase driving pleasure especially on winding country roads. A high performance braking system and an ESP system that can be deactivated offer ambitious drivers the possibility of safely pushing the rock and roll athlete to its limits.
“The combination of it’s rugged, adventurous looks, plus it’s sharp sporty performance gives the ADAM ROCKS S its very own unique personality,” said Mark Adams, Opel’s Vice President of Design. “The typical protective cladding and the strongly defined contours of the side sills give it a purposeful appearance with the engine and the chassis delivering pure driving pleasure,” added Niels Loeb, chief designer of the ADAM ROCKS S.
