“The pictures show the many different faces of the Opel ADAM from the perspective of a great artist. Every customer can design our individualization champion exactly as they like down to the last detail. This makes every ADAM unique and the customer’s very own work of art,” says Tina Müller.

 

Bryan Adams praised the collaboration with the German automaker: “Opel gave me full artistic freedom for the look, which was extremely appealing to me. And I was asked to design my own car! The result is the black Camouflage ADAM.”

The Camouflage ADAM will be launched as an exclusive limited edition series of ten cars. Proceeds will go to the “Bryan Adams Foundation“ that is committed to helping people in need, for instance by running centers for HIV carriers, caring for drug addicts, working for better education in Afghanistan and Pakistan and supporting environmental projects.
