Opel Releases Corsa Football Championship Edition Dedicated to the German National Team

To celebrate the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa that will kick off in Johannesburg's Soccer City Stadium on June 11th, Opel has released a limited edition version of its Corsa supermini dedicated to the German national soccer team. For the record the Germans were drawn into Group D where they will play their three first round matches against Australia, Serbia and Ghana.

But back to the Corsa, the German-market "Football Championship Edition" features the traditional colors of the country's soccer team combining a white paint job with stripes that run from the hood to the rear quarter window and also cover the exterior mirrors, and a set of 17-inch alloy wheels finished in black.

The special edition Corsa also gets dark tinted headlights and tail lights, sport seats, aluminum pedals, leather steering wheel and center console in piano black.

Air conditioning, stereo CD radio with steering wheel controls, electric windows and central locking with remote control are standard.

Prices for the new Corsa Football Championship Edition start from €15,160 for 87HP 1.4-liter Ecotec model.
