Opel Adam Rocks Concept: preview sketches
At the 2013 Geneva Motor Show Opel will unveil the Adam Rocks Concept, an open-air, crossover variant of the compact car, showcasing the customization possibilities and a potential future production model.
Compared with the production Adam, the Adam Rocks urban mini-crossover is taller, wider, tougher yet more compact in appearance, and features a fabric soft top that extends across the entire width and length of the roof, right back to the C-pillars.
Inspired by Parkour urban athletes, the Adam Rocks is based on a chassis raised by 15 mm and with a 20mm wider stance. The rugged nature of the vehicle is underlined by the plastic bumpers and specific, prominent wheel-arches.
“With even bolder design than any other ADAM, the ROCKS is an impressive demonstration of how much more potential for individualization our new small lifestyle car still offers after its market launch. It combines the toughness of a crossover with the coolness of open air driving,” says Malcolm Ward, Opel/Vauxhall Lead Design Director.
“As a symbol for fashion-led, active drivers wanting to stand out from the crowd, ADAM ROCKS is just one possible answer to the question of how new development paths for the absolutely unique car can be forged – and others will follow.”
