1975 Opel GT-W Geneve Concept

The Opel Geneve was a styling study by General Motors. It featured a mid-mounted Opel Diplomate V8 engine, with 5354cc, developing 230bhp and a top speed of 235 km/h. In Geneva in 1975, Opel revealed a beautifully streamlined two-seater, the “Genève.” Engineered to take a Wankel-type rotary engine, its original name was “GT/W” (“W” for Wankel).

However, GM dropped its Wankel development program before the car was completed. Opel Design renamed it and exhibited its fiberglass mock-up as an eye-catcher at the show. The car was never put into production.
