European automaker Opel has unveiled the first shots of the GTC Paris concept car it intends to debut at next month's Paris Motor Show.

The General Motors-owned brand says that the GTC Paris was designed with the emotional side of Opel's design philosophy in mind, featuring sweeping lines and a wide stance.

Measuring 4.46 meters, the GTC Paris is a compact, sporty model that hints at the Opel line-up's future direction.

The three-door model can carry five passengers, features LED front and rear lamps and a 2.0 liter turbo engine, which is fitted with Start/Stop technology and a six-speed manual gearbox.

If Opel takes the GTC Paris concept to production as the latest of the Opel/Vauxhall Astra line, it is likely to go head to head with performance variants from other brands such as the three-door Volkswagen Golf GTI, Renault Megane RS and the Ford Focus XR4 Turbo.

The Paris Motor Show runs in Paris October 2-17.
