Opel unveiled its “O-Team” Zafira (Vauxhall Vivaro) Life van. If the name and aesthetics don’t give it away, the van is a tribute to the A-Team’s GMC Vandura from the 1980s television show.
The van carries a similar paint job to the A-Team’s Vandura, with the exception of a colour change that uses Opel’s favorite hues, and that bright-green strip really pops in pictures. 20″ BBS alloy wheel hangs out at each corner, wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires, and behind the front wheels is a set of 15-inch brakes. The van itself is lower than usual, too, but that’s thanks to an adjustable air suspension.
The interior is largely untouched, apart from a touch of colour to match the exterior. There’s a set of seats from the Insignia GSi up front, while the second and third rows get rotating captain’s chairs wrapped in leather and alcantara suede. The weirdest part is that the speakers will deceive you into believing there’s a V8 under the hood (there isn’t — it’s just a 2.0-liter diesel).
This isn’t a one-off creation, either. Opel noted that every modification made to the van carries TUV approval, so the parts are all road-legal installations that anyone in Europe can make. Thus, there might be more than a few “O-Team” vans rolling around in the near future.
Opel will unveil the “O-Team” Van to thousands of Opel fans that will descend on Oschersleben this weekend to celebrate the iconic Rüsselsheim brand.
