Buick Regal GS and Excelle XT Get Opel OPC Look for Shanghai

While sifting through the endless list of cars we can't pronounce the name of, we found a couple of familiar faces.

The white sedan is the Buick Regal GS, known to any European Opel owner as the Insignia, and the blue hatchback is called the Excelle XT and is quite obviously the Opel Astra five-door.

The amazing thing is that for the Chinese venue, the two have been dressed up as some sort of race cars for the road. Both have some sort of aftermarket quad sports exhaust setup and massive wings.

The exhaust looks like its from Irmscher, but that's not the interesting part. Both Buick have received a body kit that seems almost identical to the Opel Performance Center or OPC range. This is amazing considering the Astra OPC doesn't come in a five-door configuration.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
