With the ” tigra.swiss” Irmscher is presenting the individual variant. A car colour co-ordinated internally and externally is sure to delight the eye of its observers in Switzerland . The comprehensive Irmscher accessory programme offers the Tigra customer who likes to set individualistic standards and lift his or her car above all the rest an incomparably wide range of products. In addition to the option of obtaining the Irmscher products individually through any Opel dealer, the iS packages are also installed at the Remshalden factors as complete vehicle modifications.

Exterior
Irmscher highlights the exterior of the Opel Tigra with unusual details to accentuate its sporting appearance. The dynamic two-part extension to the front apron gives a lower and wider effect to the front of the car. The radiator grille insert in Irmscher’s typical honeycomb design with a stainless steel trim adds further emphasis to the sporty looks of the Tigra. Door-handle shields and a filler-cap in motorsport design enhance the side view too. The prominent rear wing attracts the viewer’s attention to the rear of the car. In addition to this, Irmscher offers a decorative carbon-look cover to decorate the rear skirt above the exhaust end pipe.

Interior
With a convertible, it’s not just the external appearance which counts; the interior is just as important, when everyone can examine the inner fittings when the hood is open. Here, Irmscher offers design ideas of great versatility. In the Irmscher “tigra.swiss” the seats correspond to the paintwork colour and are in “Magma red” – in the same design as the “Swiss National Soccer Team Jersey”. The black leather of the seat bolsters and the door trims has an impressive carbon effect. The black leather Irmscher sports steering wheel is 340 mm in diameter and has a real sports car feel to it. Handbrake and gear levers are styled in matt chrome effect. To match them, Irmscher offers a decorative central console trim in circular-brushed aluminium finish. Aluminium-effect door handles shields and aluminium pedals accentuate the exclusive metal effect. Central armrest and gear- and handbrake-lever collars are in red leather with restrained white decorative stitching.

Engineering
With its alloy wheels in Delta or Sport Star design, Irmscher has two attractive types of wheel on offer which are ideally suited to the character of the sporty Opel two-seater. Both wheels are available in 17 inch diameter for 205/40×17 tyres. With the sportingly hard suspension Irmscher lowers the coachwork noticeably, thus guaranteeing optimum control over the vehicle, even when it is driven hard. The rear silencer with its twin tailpipe is excellently suited to the back of the vehicle and provides a sporting sound.
