Opel presents the OPC version of its Insignia Sports Tourer

If you are in Europe and have enough budget for that, you may have already fallen in love with Opel Insignia OPC. But the car may lack the cargo space you need. In case it does, now you have no more excuses not to have an Insignia OPC in your parking lot. You just needed a longer name: Sports Tourer.

The station wagon version of this amazing car will undergo the same strict testing process the sedan had to go through, what should not be a problem. Besides the great looks of Insignia, the Sports Tourer also shares the turbocharged 2.8-litre V6 that produces 325 bhp (239 kw) with it. Torque is in the good figures of 435 Nm.

In order to have the best handling, the car also features the Adaptive 4x4 traction system with eletronic limited slip differential and is 1 cm lower than an Insignia SRi. Just like the sedan, it will be offered in six colour options: Arden Blue, Power Red, Carbon Flash Black, Silver Lake, Olympic White and Technical Grey.

Top speed is electronically limited to 250 km/h, but the car accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 6.3 s. Recaro front seats and standard 19-inch wheels give a good idea of what the car can do, even though knowing is never like feeling. Good luck to the ones that have that chance! Behave...
