Opel Launches Corsa 40 Years Anniversary, Marking Four Decades of First Generation

German carmaker Opel is announcing the launch of a new special edition, which is based on the Corsa model. Named the Corsa 40 Years, it marks the fourth anniversary of the appearance of the first generation of the popular small class model.

2022 marks the 40th anniversary of the first generation Opel Corsa


The Opel Corsa is one of the most popular models ever produced by the Russelsheim manufacturer. The first generation made its debut in 1982, and since then more than 14 million copies have been sold worldwide. Meanwhile, the model has reached its sixth iteration.

To properly celebrate 40 years of existence, the German brand has launched its anniversary edition entitled Corsa 40 Years. It will be produced in a limited series of only 1,982 copies, with reference to the year of publication of the first generation. The cars will only be available in certain European markets.

The twin brother on the right, Vauxhall Corsa-e, will also receive a special anniversary edition. However, it will be produced in 1,000 copies, which will be offered exclusively in a fully electric version.

Visually, all cars will be painted in the Rekord Red shade, inspired by the color of the first generation. The anniversary models will receive a series of exterior details finished in black, namely the front grille, 17-inch wheels and the ceiling.

Inside we find sports seats with a retro-style tartan upholstery, inspired by the 1982 model. Each car will also receive the usual number plate from 0001 to 1982, which attests to the fact that it is part of the limited series Corsa 40 Years.

The equipment list includes LED lights, heated seats and steering wheel, 7-inch infotainment system and reversing camera. The driver will benefit from automatic emergency braking, front / rear parking sensors and frontal collision alert.

The list of orders for the new Opel Corsa 40 Years will open in the coming weeks. The right-hand drive version can, however, already be ordered in the UK and costs £ 31,000 (approx. € 36,100).
