Koenig’s Fat Bottom 1987 Opel Kadett GSi is a rare single horn

Koenig is known for its wide range of high-quality models such as Ferrari, Porsche and Mercedes, but the German tuner has also done some work on models from major manufacturers. A great example is the rare 1987 Opel Kadett GSi, which has a very wide range of visual modifications.

For our young audience, the Cadet is Astra’s great grandfather. The example in the picture is based on the three-door Kadett E hatchback, specifically the top version of the GSi. However, due to the redesigned body panels and non-spare taillights, it is difficult to define it as Opel, as only the upper part of the body remains unchanged.

The Koenig body includes an aerodynamic front bumper with a prominent chin, a completely redesigned tail with rectangular taillights, a rear wing and wide extensions for the front and rear wings. The latter is integrated into the body with artificial side fans inspired by Ferrari Testarossa, one of the most prominent supercars of the 80s. Finally, a unique set of wheels is mounted on ultra-wide tires that appear to protrude from the rear axle of the supercar.

Much attention can be paid to the appearance, but the cabin has also received a number of upgrades. Inside, you’ll find a set of leather bucket seats, a Momo steering wheel, Sparco treads and mats, along with a cluster of retro-scented digital instruments.

Opel Kadett GSi 156 hp (115 kW / 158 PS) and a 2.0-liter 16-valve four-cylinder atmospheric air that produces 203 Nm (150 lb-ft) of torque. We have seen strong wild modifications in the Kadetts, but the listing says nothing, so we think the engine will remain in stock. There are problems with the back of the current owner and it is not convenient to drive, so it may be a harder suspension than the factory model.

The odometer shows 177 170 km (110 088 miles), but unfortunately the Cadet does not come with service records. However, the inspection showed that, despite its age, it is in very good mechanical and cosmetic condition, with little signs of wear.

Adjusted hot hatch is available for sale Kataviki. It is located in Spain, the original owner bought it again in 1987, the bodysuit was re-equipped in 1990. According to the listing, this is one of the three Kenig Cadets in Spain and we have no information about it. In the rest of Europe it is a very rare vehicle.

The auction closes on June 2, so there is plenty of time to apply. If you want to know about the cost of this rare Cadet, it will cost between 23,100 euros ($ 24,792) and 25,500 euros ($ 27,367).
