The Opel Kadett Project
This is very much a passion project where we do what has not been done on these little cars before. Born into an era where performance versions of small cars were being developed by most manufacturers, this little car was completely forgotten by Opel. A sad indictment indeed because the massive potential of this car could have matched anything running during the period. Hamstring by silly homologation regulations…wherever freedoms to modify the package on par with competition such as Minis, Fords and the rest, the machine could match or in most cases better the opposition. That left a lot of work to be done and we are still busy…The Blydenstein project covers the more recent work. In the present format fitted with a 1273cc version of the original and in road tune it is a rocket…able to accelerate to 100Kmh (at 1500m altitude) in 7.5 seconds and a top speed of 112Mph. That will more than take on any 1300 from back in the day…were not finished yet.
