OPC Power

How does outstanding handling matched to 239 kW (325 hp) of turbine smooth aluminum twin-turbo V6 power sound? It’s waiting for you in the Opel Insignia OPC, along with race-developed technology that includes sodium filled valves and oil cooled pistons.

 

The same levels of technology and turbocharging expertise also extend to the Opel GTC OPC. Here our engineers have packed an instantly responsive 206 kW (280 hp) and 400 Nm into just 2 liters.

 

The new Opel Corsa OPC is also a dedicated high performance driving machine. The mind expanding 152 kW (207 hp) and 245 Nm torque from the 1.6 Turbo literally moves you. Then, to really set the senses reeling overboost kicks the torque up to an even more exhilarating 280 Nm. The instant response and sheer strength are perfectly matched by the superb short throw 6-speed transmission. Just imagine the fun. Then consider the handling, styling and charisma.

 

How you put the power down is also up to you. Precise short throw 6-speed manual or optional 6-speed automatic and steering wheel paddles on the Opel Insignia OPC mean that shifting takes place at the speed of thought.

 

After all, power is nothing without control.

Special OPC chassis

The big news for the new Opel Corsa OPC is that along with optimized steering and special Remus dual exhaust, the lowered suspension now features Frequency Selective Damping (FSD). FSD reacts to driving and road conditions by constantly changing the stiffness of the suspension, providing a unique combination of grip and comfort.

The uprated chassis rides on specific 17˝ OPC alloys as standard, with the option of even more dramatic 18˝ weight optimized alloys that are also specific to OPC.

The optional Performance Package adds a mechanical Limited Slip Differential, uprated Brembo brakes and track optimized suspension set-up for ultimate small car performance.

 

The Opel GTC OPC and the Opel Insignia OPC are significant evolutions of the regular models. The OPC exclusive HiPerStrut front suspension reduces torque steer while improving steering feel and grip significantly, Limited Slip Differentials increase their road holding even further.

Both OPC models feature high performance Brembo brakes and 19˝ alloys, while the specially calibrated FlexRide chassis adapt their response to your driving style.

 

The Opel Insignia OPC adds 4x4 All Wheel Drive for excellent control also on difficult surfaces.
