After more than 150 years of heritage packed with an abundance of innovations, Opel is introducing its vision of the future.

The Opel Monza Concept will make its world premiere at the Frankfurt Motor Show from September 12–22.

The Monza Concept shows what Opel customers can expect to see in the future.

The sporty appeal of Opel models has always been inseparably linked to functionality and, in this respect, the Monza Concept pays homage to the seminal Opel Monza Coupé, built between 1978 and 1986.

It also combined elegant, dynamic styling with clever, functional solutions for drivers and passengers.

Similarities between the two cars are visible in design elements such as their large, glazed surfaces and low belt-line.

Opel CEO Dr Karl-Thomas Neumann said: "This car is a study that will have a long-term impact on the next generation of Opel models… With the Opel Monza Concept, we make our automotive future tangible today.

"I can't yet go into detail about how the Monza Concept's interior design, and especially its trend-setting technologies, will change the driving experience. However, I can guarantee that viewed from any angle, its innovative body design and perfect proportions will turn heads. But they are just a visible expression of the great substance you will find under the bodywork.

"Everyone should visit us at the Opel stand at the IAA to get a look at Opel's exciting future!"
