Opel will unveil its new Insignia OPC at next week’s Frankfurt Motor Show. It’s powered by a 2.8-litre V6 turbo petrol engine that produces an impressive 325hp and 435Nm of torque. The OPC chassis has been enhanced, with special focus on the re-worked rear axle where engineers have modified around 60 percent of the componentry – as is the case with the other members of the new Insignia family. In addition, noise and vibration behaviour has been improved through numerous fine-tuning measures. New ESP software enables even more precise dynamics tuning, especially in reaction to understeer tendencies. Modified damper software for the FlexRide chassis with its adjustable shock absorbers ensures optimum road holding. This OPC-specific programming improves driving dynamics, allowing a quicker and more precise response to different manoeuvres and road conditions. The Insignia OPC sprints from zero to 100 km/h in 6.0 seconds (Sports Tourer: 6.3 seconds) and reaches a top speed of 250 km/h (electronically limited).
The interior features Recaro sports seats, an OPC gear knob and a new instrument panel and centre console. It also features a new infotainment system with a touchpad, touchscreen and steering wheel controls, along with voice activation. The new Opel Insignia OPC will also be available in the new Insignia Country Tourer body style.
