Opel's teaser campaign for its upcoming Adam city car has come undone this week, thanks to one eagle-eyed fan in the Spanish town of Miñano.

Spied testing around Europe in recent months, the Adam's name was revealed as part of an eleborate comic-strip teaser in May. Until now, little else has been revealed.

This week, Autofacil reader J Revuelta snapped off a round of grainy shots that offer a first look at the undisguised Adam, revealing Opel's perky new city car for the first time.

Entering the Opel range beneath the existing Corsa light car, the Adam features a unique new look that shows the little German will be positioned against the likes of the style-focused Fiat 500.

Comments from GM Europe boss Nick Reilly earlier this year suggested the Adam would carry a premium price for its segment, although new plans to turn the loss-making Opel around will see the brand steered away from its upmarket aspirations.

The Adam is nonetheless expected to bring a chic new style-savvy buyer to the brand, with a range of personalisation options boosting appeal.

Opel confirmed earlier this year that the Adam will be powered by a range of naturally-aspirated engines between 1.0 and 1.4 litres in capacity, with either three or four-cylinder layouts.

These new engines will also be among the first Opel powertrains to be fully Euro 6 compliant, and all will feature direct injection.

A pair of 1.6 litre diesel engines are also slated to be introduced post-launch, and an all-electric commuter version has also been rumoured.

Australia

With its official unveiling not due until September's Paris Motor Show, it is too early to speculate on an Australian debut.

Speaking with TMR, Opel Australia PR Manager, Melanie Kerin said that while Opel Australia will look at the possibility of introducing the Adam, it is too soon to confirm plans.

Opel Australia will launch in September with the Insignia, Astra, Astra GTC and Corsa models.
