High-power LEDs from OSRAM Opto for the Opel GTC concept

With the Opel GTC concept car, Opel is setting new standards in styling, dynamics and technology. Apart from its stunning looks and impressive performance, the coupé is equipped with the latest high-power LEDs from OSRAM Opto Semiconductors.These tiny light sources are so powerful that only a few are needed for all the exterior lighting. Parking lights and daylight running light on the Opel GTC concept car are provided by Golden DRAGON LEDs; two OSTAR LEDs are used in each headlight for the dipped beam, with three further OSTAR LEDs in each headlight providing the high beam. Each fog light is equipped with one OSTAR LED.

The tiny light sources have a life of more than 50,000 hours, which means they will last as long as the car. Their compact dimensions give vehicle designers immense freedom to create new designs for the front and rear light clusters and for the cockpit lighting. The Opel GTC concept car is further proof that LEDs are fast becoming the lighting of choice in the car industry – for both interior and exterior lighting.
