The Kadett C sporting "Coupé GT/E"
models appeared in August 1975, a year before the rival VW Golf GTI.
The GT/E was priced, in 1975, at 12,950 Marks which was
approximately 30% higher than the manufacturer's listed retail price
(9,970 Marks) for a "1.2S" powered Kadett coupé. The fuel injected
performance coupé now provided a basis for competition cars.
Advertising of the time featured an aggressive two-tone yellow and
white paint scheme, although it was also possible to specify a
conventional "everyday" body colour.
