Opel Kadett Cabrio

The Opel Kadett Cabrio by Bertone.

Vehicle Overview

The Opel Kadett Cabrio marked the beginning of a successful partnership between Bertone and General Motors, a collaboration that continues to thrive and evolve. In 1986, Opel commissioned Nuccio Bertone to create a cabriolet version of their popular German compact. This project went beyond feasibility studies and prototypes; it involved the complete production of Opel’s latest creation. Bertone demonstrated its reliability and versatility, providing both creative input and mass-market production capabilities. The new Kadett Cabrio retained the core identity of the Opel brand while introducing an original twist. The car was designed to be highly driveable, featuring elegant lines and superb proportions. This blend of practicality and aesthetic appeal made it a standout in its category. The Kadett Cabrio was available with a range of engine options. These included 1300 cc, 1400 cc, and 1600 cc engines, as well as a catalyzed version with electronic injection. For those seeking a sportier experience, there was the 2000 cc engine featuring the GSI brand. This variety allowed the Kadett Cabrio to cater to a wide range of drivers, from those seeking efficiency to those desiring performance. Between 1987 and 1993, Carrozzeria Bertone produced 60,000 units of the Kadett Cabrio. This production run underscored Bertone’s capability to deliver high-quality vehicles on a large scale, reinforcing its reputation as a reliable partner for major automotive manufacturers. The Opel Kadett Cabrio stands as a testament to the successful collaboration between Bertone and General Motors. It exemplifies how innovative design and practical engineering can come together to create a vehicle that not only meets but exceeds market expectations. This model laid the groundwork for future collaborations, showcasing Bertone’s ability to blend creativity with mass production, ensuring both the unique identity of the vehicle and its accessibility to a broad audience.
