Opel/Vauxhall is attempting to access its 'passionate side' with the GTC Paris concept set to be revealed at the French motor show this week.

The concept is essentially a tarted-up Astra, previewing the forthcoming VXR, due next year. The concept has a dramatic bodykit and 21-inch wheels to complete the effect.

The 2.0-litre turbo engine develops 286bhp, and the GTC has a front limited slip differential and improved suspension to transmit all that power onto the road.
