Facebook users get a surprise Astra GTC as a Christmas gift

  • Christmas raffle with a twist: surprise your Facebook friends
  • Christmas offer on Opel fan pages ends December 26

Rüsselsheim.  Facebook fans are in for a nice Christmas surprise: Opel is offering users of the social media platform a Christmas gift with a difference.


The app “Merry Astra GTC” gives Facebook users the opportunity to enter their friends in a competition to win an Astra GTC. This is how it works: users of the international-facing page (www.facebook.com/Opel) or of the German site (www.facebook.com/OpelDE) can nominate a friend from their network for the competition to win a Compact Coupé.

They have until December 26 to do so. The nominee is then notified with an electronic message. If he or she decides to become a fan of the Opel pages and agrees to enter the raffle, it is then just down to luck. It is entirely possible that shortly after Christmas Eve, a brand new Astra GTC is parked outside. The Viennese social media agency “vi knallgrau” devised the Facebook app together with Opel.

With its sculpted shapes, precise accents and dramatic proportions, the new Opel Astra GTC which has just had its market launch, is the most emotional member of the Astra family. On the road, all Astra GTC versions benefit from a premium front axle layout with HiPerStrut – High Performance Strut – that ideally combines with the clever Opel patented Watt’s link rear axle to provide unmatched stability and the sharpest driving precision
