TOPPER: Adam S sports exclusive 1.4litre engine
Vauxhall have revealed a new top-of-the-range high-performance version of the Adam.
The 150PS Adam S boasts an exclusively-developed 1.4litre Turbo ECOTEC engine, sports-tuned suspension, VXR braking system and ‘Red ‘n Roll’ styling.
It is paired with a six-speed manual gearbox, and offers a top speed of 137mph, largely thanks to several weight-saving features as well as the new engine.
The vehicle – which is also fitted with Start/Stop technology – meets Euro VI emission standards and is paired with 18inch wheels.
Externally, the Adam S features red body paint, anthracite grey roof, special rear spoiler and sporty carbon-look grille brand bar and door mirror caps.
The front lip spoiler, side sill moldings and an extended rear bumper cut-out with a visible, bold exhaust tailpipe complete the Adam S livery.
Inside, the cabin features front Recaro Performance seats, red leather-trimmed steering wheel, gearshift and handbrake, and red and white flashes on instrument and door panels.
Black rear privacy glass, LED daytime running and rear tail lights, electronic climate control and Vauxhall’s IntelliLink infotainment system are also offered as standard.
IntelliLink provides USB and Bluetooth connectivity, audio streaming, seven speakers, seven-inch high-definition colour touchscreen and satellite navigation.
