The tuning specialist XS has gone to work on the new Astra plug-in hybrid.

The electrified Astra show car is finished in high-gloss white paint with the addition of the Opel Motorsport coloured decals. The five-door Astra features top-of-the-line Ultimate equipment and numerous state-of-the-art technologies, such as the digital Pure Panel cockpit and the adaptive Intelli-Lux LED® Pixel Light, as well as AGR-certified sport front seats.

The project is part of a cooperation with XS Carnight that will further energise Opel’s image in the tuning community as the approachable German brand. Fans had already been wowed by the public debut of the newest Astra generation at last year’s international Tuning Meeting at Lake Wörthersee.

The team from XS Carnight has equipped the Astra with additional “GRINDS air suspension” and height sensors from “Carstyle me”, combined with the original shock absorbers. The 20-inch forged wheels from the American rim manufacturer “RVNT Forged” are real eye-catchers. Finally, the show car’s unmistakable look is completed by motorsport decals like those available from Opel Accessories, on the car’s sides and windscreen.

In the cooperation between XS Carnight and Opel – which this year is celebrating its 160th anniversary – the Astra show car will play a starring role at the anniversary XS Carnight “20 Years of XSCN” on July 29-30 at the Berlin Olympic Stadium. Anyone who wants to see the Astra “XS” live should hurry; the last tickets are available online here. The next highlight in a series of events will be on September 17 with the XS Carnight at Lake Wörthersee in Austria.
