Opel’s long nosed Monza Concept is a beauty waiting to be made
It’s obvious that Opel is busy this year as they came up with an updated Insignia OPC. However, clearly overshadowing the vehicle is the new Monza Concept, which is not just a collection of curves, but rather an art to behold. It was unveiled at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show.
And while we wouldn’t have given much importance to this concept, we hear that Opel is making a full-on entry into UAE and certain GCC markets. In any case, the Monza Concept is one vehicle we wouldn’t mind seeing on the roads. Its long-nose and curvaceous body is certainly eye-catching. And then there are the gullwing doors that we really dig.
However, the centre-piece of the Monza has to be the state-of-the-art LED projection technology. It essentially eradicates separate monitors that display different information; instead, there’s a wide, sculpted dashboard that sweeps across the ends, and serves as a single projection surface. Everything is customisable, and there are a total of 18 LED projectors to aid the cause.
The juice under the bonnet is still not confirmed, but at this point they say the Monza will be an electric car with an additional range extender in the form of a 1.0-litre Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) engine.
It’s still too early to comment, and yes there are a lot of futuristic ideas incorporated into the vehicle, but we’re hoping Opel put this into production sometime soon.
