Opel presents Adam Rocks urban mini-crossover

Opel presented its urban mini-crossover concept with a unique personalization program based on the Adam at the Geneva Motor Show. The Adam Rocks is one of the first cars Opel has premiered, along with the Adam R2 rally car, the Cascada convertible and the Zafira Tourer 1.6 CDTI.

According to the manufacturer, there are no less than 61,000 exterior and 82,000 interior configurations on the Adam. There will be even more options for Adam Rocks, intended for drivers seeking some escapism. This urban crossover project resembles Renault's Captur, which was also presented at Geneva. 

Opel also presented the competitive version of its city car, the Adam Rally R2, in Geneva. Designed for rally car drivers, it is officially recognized all over Europe.

A chic convertible with an efficient engine

There is also the new Opel Cascada, a sophisticated comfortable four-seater convertible with a hood that opens at the touch of a button in just 17 seconds. It comes with exclusive Nappa leather upholstery, ergonomic and ventilated seats and a series of security systems. It will be available in dealerships in May. Prices will start at €29,990. 

Lastly, Opel has launched its new most efficient diesel engine, the 1.6 CDTI Ecotec, on the Zafira Tourer people carrier. This new unit delivers 136 hp with combined cycle fuel efficiency of 4.1 l/100 km and carbon emission levels of 109 g/km.

    Driving a $900,000 Porsche 918 Spyder to the future

    It’s more than just its inherent speed, or the whooshing noise that fills the cabin like a school choir jamming with James Hetfield. It’s what it represents in an industry full of skeptics. It’s a portal into the future – a time capsule left by some mad scientist born decades too soon. It’s something that shouldn’t exist. And yet it does.

    5 Unanswered Questions About Jesus

    As Christians worldwide gather for Easter to celebrate their belief in the death and rebirth of Jesus, researchers continue to delve into the mysteries that surround the man. The following are five questions about Jesus that, for now, at least, remain unanswered. In 2008, astronomer Dave Reneke argued that the Star of Bethlehem (a celestial event long associated with Jesus' birth) may have been Venus and Jupiter coming together to form a bright light in the sky. Other researchers have claimed that a similar conjunction between Saturn and Jupiter occurred in October of 7 B.C. Still others have claimed that Jesus was born in the spring, based on stories about shepherds watching over their flocks in fields on the night of Jesus' birth — something they would have done in the spring, not the winter.
