Last night I saw on the news a famous person from my country, speaking about her new partner. Her excitement amazed me and I let the TV on to that channel to see what it is about. After some seconds, surprise, she was saying that her new partner is the new 2013 Opel Adam.

The 2013 Opel Adam was announced at the 2012 Paris Auto Show. It looks like a combination between Mini Cooper and Fiat 500. In my opinion this car is a perfect car for a lady because is small and elegant.

Icy roads in Europe are a common sight in the cold season. So Opel decided to prove how well the Ampera performs in low temperatures and driving on ice.

And what better place to do that than the Baltic Sea, portions of which are frozen over this time of year. So Opel took the Ampera and a number of journalists and set off for Estonia.
