    Opel/Vauxhall Coupe Spied in Germany

    Here we have the first spy shots of an upcoming Opel/Vauxhall Coupe, caught in Germany while being loaded onto a truck.

    The front reveals a similar front grille found on the new Adam city car, and despite being under a cover, we also get to see bulging fenders.

    According to the photographer, the roof line was very similar to the Cadillac ELR, which will debut in just two days at the Detroit Auto Show.

    Is it RWD? If so we may be seeing a shadow of 2015 Camaro. (As in wheel base ,width ETC)

    PS
    The grill looks Mercedes...love!

    Could this just be an Opel Adam convertible?

    Hmm... the second picture in the series. That brown looks a LOT like the brown color of the modeling clay used on styling bucks. Also, the front grille... that's non-functional. Not sure what this is but if it's a clay design buck, it might be anything ????

    I find it peculiar they're like covering it but showing it a little.

    That was my thinking as well but it's odd that it was captured in transit.

    Some of the contours suggest more of an Opel GT.

    This looks like a GM employee scooping something for someone on purpose.
