Rüsselsheim. The new Opel Astra Copacabana conjures up Brazil’s sun and passion on European roads. The special model is a ‘must have’ for all genuine soccer fans – from Rotterdam to Istanbul, from Liverpool to Dortmund. With the sporty Astra, Opel continues its engagement in international professional soccer. The Copacabana is as spellbinding as a Brazilian ball wizard and will be a real attention-getter at every public screening this summer.
The Brazilian flag on the roof, palm trees and dancing lines along the doors – it’s exterior already shows pure South American temperament. And indeed, under the hood the new 200 hp/147 kW 1.6 Turbo gasoline engine is just waiting to be let loose. Acceleration from zero to 100 km/h in 7.9 seconds will press the driver back into the seat made of real grass upholstery. A masterpiece of craftsmanship, Opel’s interior designers successfully processed original grass from the famous Maracanã Stadium. Every car comes with a certificate confirming the authenticity of the sacred greenery. Just as authentic are the footwells filled with finest Copacabana sand – this beach flair gave the Astra its name. And every special edition comes with a cool pair of flip-flops.
Sounding in Samba or Vuvuzela tones, the horn provides true stadium atmosphere, as does a beverage vending machine that mixes up ice cold Caipirinhas during the drive – alcohol-free, of course. Because the Cachaça goes directly into the tank as a turbo cocktail. The Astra Copacabana is as Brazilian as Pelé and as German as Jürgen Klopp – a truly exotic blend: for just 24,444.44 euros from April 1 at your Opel dealer!
