Opel News - New Opel Astra Copacabana: The exotically beautiful model conjures up Brazil’s sun and passion on European roads

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!
