Opel Insignia OPC Now Available As 270 km/h 'Unlimited' Version

There’s nothing important to actually report about the most powerful version of the Insignia, the one that comes with 325 hp, all-wheel drive and the OPC badge on the back... except the fact that it now comes in an ‘Unlimited’ version without an electronically-restricted top speed, fully exploiting the platforms capacity to reach a maximum top speed of 270 km/h (sedan, with manual transmission).

“We are responding to frequently expressed customer wishes,” says Alain Visser, Vice President Sales, Marketing and Aftersales at Adam Opel AG. “Insignia OPC buyers are generally experienced and responsible drivers who want to enjoy the full technical possibilities of their car.”

The only features that will tell you it’s an ‘Unlimited’ when you see one passing by on the street are the distinguished by a blue Brembo logo and a newly-designed tachometer and speedometer. All the other performance figures of the regular OPC remain untouched, including the zero to 100 km/h in of about 6 seconds (depending on the chassis and transmission), emissions and fuel consumption.

“The ‘Unlimited’ customer package includes an OPC performance driving training course on the Opel proving grounds in Dudenhofen. Owners will learn how to exploit the driving dynamics of their vehicle even more safely and confidently, under the supervision of Opel brand ambassador Joachim Winkelhock and instructors with motor sports experience,” Opel says.

The ‘Unlimited’ also comes with the OPC-specific 10,000-kilometer test program, which validates its fine tuning and long-term endurance under the toughest possible conditions on the Nürburgring Nordschleife north loop. The loads endured on the rigorous test cycle are rated at factor 18, corresponding to an on-the-road test of 180,000 kilometers.

Sales of the unrestricted Insignia will begin this month, with prices to start at €48,605 (in Germany) for the four-door notchback with manual transmission.
