A very green Opel Astra F sedan, Spotted in China close to the eastern section of the Third Ring Road in Beijing. The good Astra was in a good shape; clean paintwork, no rust, no bruises, and no missing parts. The Astra F was manufactured from 1991 until 1998, it was never officially exported to China so how this Opel ended up in the capital is something of a mystery.

Opel badge still on the back. Wheel covers are period. The vehicle was surprisingly clean for dusty Beijing, indicating this Opel has a very happy owner who likes his old Astra clean, and that is a good thing! The Astra F was available with many an engine. The smallest was a 1.4 and the largest a hefty 151hp 2.0 turbo for the Astra GSi. Our Beijing car is powered by a 83hp 1.6.

  1. @Tycho: 2.0 16V with 110 kW/ 150 HP in Opel Astra F GSi is atmospheric (naturally aspirated) engine. BTW: Turbocharged version of this engine 2.0 16V with 150 kW/201 HP Turbo was in Opel Calibra 4×4 and in Opel Vectra A 4×4.

  2. RIWAL888 is kinda right.

    The Astra F GSI were equipped with:
    – 2.0 85 kW 8V (very rare, early production models)
    – 2.0 110 kW 16V (first series)
    – 1.8 92 kW 16V (second series)
    – 1.8 100 kW 16V (second series)

    But even the 150 kw engine was equipped in the Astra, but not in Europe at all.

    It was a South African version of the Opel Astra, the Chevrolet Astra.

    The Chevrolet Astra 200 TS was equipped with the 6 Gear manual box, but only FWD and the 2.0 Turbo with 150 kW.

    So the whole engine range of the Astra covered 44 kW (1.4) to 150 kW (2.0 Turbo).

    the pictured model is an second series with an 55 kW engine, sporting Euro 3 (Egine code: X16SZR).
