Not only in its marketing and promotion did the Opel GT quicken the heartbeat of sports car drivers, but also in its countless victories on the track. Sometimes referred to as the 'baby Corvette', the Opel GT survived early attempts to have the car dropped but through the determined efforts of its creators, the diminutive sports car survived to blaze a trail of survival across Europe, creating a dedicated following and silencing its critics in the process.

With foreword by Henri Greder and Bob Lutz, this comprehensive account of the Opel GT documents fully the prototype development and racing career of this mighty sports car between the years 1968-1975. There are specific sections dedicated to the successful and professional private teams and cars of the tuners Virgilio Conrero, Henri Greder und Klaus Steinmetz.

Lavishly illustrated and supported by many previously unpublished black & white and colour photographs, this book gives the reader a clear understanding of the car's historic background, technical development and motor sport achievements during this seven year period.

Featuring race results and driver profiles, this excellent book perfectly captures the commitment and dedication of the drivers and teams which helped to give the Opel GT the admirable record it deserved, and often against much stronger opposition. If the sleek lines of the Opel GT inspired you during these years, or if it is intended as a gift for a motor racing enthusiast, this book will not disappoint you today.
