Opel has revived the Manta as an electric car.
Restomod Opel Manta GSe ElektroMOD received a retro-style design and modern technologies.

Opel has announced the imminent debut of the Manta GSe ElektroMOD restomod, inspired by the classic Manta coupe, which was produced in the 70s of the last century.

The electric car received a retro-style design and modern technologies, for example, a Pixel-Vizor display in place of the grille, on which various animations are displayed.

The premiere of the novelty will take place on May 19, 2021.

From the original Manta, the electric car got a two-door body with a long hood and a front end design. The optics are modern, like the power plant — according to preliminary data, it will be borrowed from Mokka-e.

Probably, we are talking about a 136-horsepower electric motor, which is powered by a battery with a capacity of 50 kilowatt-hours, but there is no official information about the «stuffing» of the Manta GSe ElektroMOD yet.

The Opel Manta GSe ElektroMOD was based on the Manta A model, which was produced in the period from 1970 to 1975 and was sold in the amount of 498.5 thousand copies.

ElektroMOD in the name of the model, in turn, refers to the experimental electric car Elektro GT, which set several world speed records on the German Hockenheimring track in 1971.

Last year, Opel changed its corporate color from white to bright yellow, which was considered more recognizable and memorable.

In addition, this shade symbolizes the era of electrification: by 2024, all models of the brand will be electrified.

Opel aims to electrify its entire range in Europe by 2024. This means that each model will have a pure electric or hybrid version.

And to emphasize this «battery strategy», a unique restomod was built — the first generation Opel Manta coupe, converted to electric traction.

Why Manta? First, she turns 50 this year. And secondly, it was her design that formed the basis of the modern Vizor concept, which has already been used on the Mokka and Crossland models, and later will appear on other models.

The Vizor is the styling of a racing helmet: a black front “mask” into which the headlights are integrated.

At the Opel Manta GSe ElektroMOD restomod, this Vizor is already made in a modern way — with a glossy black panel and LED headlights.

There are also new 17-inch wheels and a plastic body kit, and black decor is used instead of chrome. The cabin is equipped with modern screens (12 «for instruments and 10» for the media system) and sports seats.

Instead of a gasoline engine, an electric motor is installed with a return of 147 hp. and 225 Nm, but at the same time the four-speed manual transmission with the standard lever and clutch is retained.

By the way, the original serial Manta had much weaker gasoline engines — a maximum of 105 hp. and 153 Nm (excluding racing special versions).

A full charge of the lithium-ion traction battery with a capacity of 31 kWh should be enough for about 200 km.

The electric coupe Opel Manta GSe ElektroMOD will participate in various events. But, alas, there is no talk of the modern reincarnation of Manta.
