The Opel Astra is a compact car/small family car engineered and manufactured by the German automaker Opel since 1991, currently at its sixth generation.
The Astra F debuted in September 1991. With the Kadett E's successor, Opel adopted the Astra nameplate, which was already used by Vauxhall for the Kadett D and E. It was offered as a three- or five-door hatchback, a saloon (sedan), and an estate (wagon) known as the Caravan and available with five doors only, bringing Opel's run of three-door wagons to an end at long last. A cabriolet was also offered, designed, and built by Bertone in Italy.
This German example come for sale as a rarely seen first owner example, which has never seen rain! It is a regularly serviced car (oil changed at about 19.000 km, timing belt changed). It comes with two original keys in new vehicle condition, all original.
What is also interesting to mention, the design of the Cabrio comes from the Italian designer Bertone, a rarely seen cooperation for a German car. And it also comes in a stunning optional purple color, which became a standard for all models 2 years later from 1996. Also the rims were optional.
You will not find a second such example, a real investment piece.
