1970, Cars: Opel Manta A

The Opel Manta A was released in September 1970, two months ahead of the then new Opel Ascona on which it was based. It was GM's answer to the popular Ford Capri. It was a two-door coupé with distinctive round tail lights similar to those on the Opel GT.

There were three engines available 1600, 1600S en 1900S. In 1972 the range was expanded with a 1200 engine from the Opel Kadett.

The Manta A was replaced by the Manta B in August 1975.
