The Opel Junior is a concept car designed by the German automobile manufacturer Opel. It was first shown to the public at the 1983 Frankfurt Motor Show.[1]

The small 3.41 m (134.3 in)[2] long three-door city car is powered by a 1.2 L petrol engine, developing 55 bhp (41 kW; 56 PS). It featured a particularly low drag co-efficienty of Cd=0.31 and a low kerb weight of 650 kg (1,430 lb).

The interior design was modular, with the dashboard elements being removable such as the stereo and clock, and the seat covers could be used as sleeping bags.
