Opel’s quick Adam S hatch, revealed as thinly-veiled concept in Geneva earlier this year, will make its production debut next month.

Joining the regular Adam range that debuted in Europe in 2012, the S model gets a number of styling and mechanical tweaks to make it the line-up’s new hero model.

On the styling front, it gets 18-inch alloys, a front lip spoiler, a rear wing, a unique front grille and carbon-effect mirror casings.

Inside there’s leather-upholstered Recaro front seats and red contrast stitching on the seats, gear lever, handbrake and steering wheel.

The Adam S also packs a 110kW/220Nm 1.4 litre four into its compact chest, sending power to the front wheels through a six-speed manual shifter.

Opel quotes a relatively sharp 0-100km/h time of 8.5 seconds, along with a top speed “well over” 200km/h. In concept form, Opel boasted of a 220km/h max.

Larger 16-inch brake discs are fitted up front, while 15-inch rotors take the place of the standard rear drums, and all are clamped by sliding calipers.

The suspension is lower and firmer too, and the steering ratio has been tightened for a sportier feel.

As with the rest of the range, we won’t see the Opel in Australia. But, for European fans of quick and compact hatches, this could be one to look forward to.
