Opel's iconic Kadett 2.0 GSi Superboss turns 30 this year, and to celebrate, you can now pre-order a new SentiMETAL T-Shirt sporting this uniquely South African little rocket.
Born to beat the equally loved BMW 325iS "Gusheshe", the Superboss is a true South African icon. Featuring a trick limited slip differential, Schrick cams and loads of Irmscher suspension bits, the Superboss was a fearsome racing machine, particularly in the hands of Mike Briggs, who used it to clinch many a Group N victory and championship.

"We've been informed by local Superboss fans that a special birthday party is planned for this iconic machine, which is increasingly coveted by collectors. Keep a close eye on our social pages as more information becomes available," says Hannes Oosthuizen, SentiMETAL project leader.
The new T-Shirt joins a growing line-up of Superboss-themed items that include a variety of prints, and also a new Norev scale model car of the original Kadett E GSi (not quite a Superboss, but as close as you'll get).
"Our new T-Shirt is the result of many requests from the Superboss and bigger Opel fanbase," Oosthuizen explains, "and it is now available to pre-order here." Offered in Small, Medium, Large and Extra-Large, with an image of a black Superboss on a quality light charcoal shirt, it should be a real head-turner.
SentiMETAL, Cars.co.za's growing car-culture sub-brand, acquired a Superboss two years ago and restored it to Concours condition. View the video on this project, below;
