Opel has released the first sketches of the Adam Rocks concept, which will debut next month at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show.
Inspired by Parkour urban athletes, the so-called urban mini crossover measures 3,700 mm long and has a three-door open-air body style. Compared to the regular version, it is 15 mm higher and 20 mm wider stance. The most important part of the Adam Rocks concept is its fabric retractable roof, which extends across the entire width and length of the roof, right back to the C-pillars.
"With even bolder design than any other Adam, the Rocks is an impressive demonstration of how much more potential for individualization our new small lifestyle car still offers after its market launch. It combines the toughness of a crossover with the coolness of open air driving," said Malcolm Ward, Opel/Vauxhall Lead Design Director. Describing the rationale behind Opel’s newest concept car, he explains: "As a symbol for fashion-led, active drivers wanting to stand out from the crowd, the Adam Rocks is just one possible answer to the question of how new development paths for the absolutely unique car can be forged - and others will follow."
