Opel Insignia OPC and Corsa OPC confirmed for Australian launch

Opel has announced its plans to introduce the Insignia OPC and the Corsa OPC to Australia in 2013 which will join the current lineup.

The Opel Insignia OPC is the most powerful production car ever signed by the automaker and the model is coming with a 2.8 liter V6 engine which is producing a total output of 238 kW and it has a peak torque of 435 Nm. The unit is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission which is sending power to the 4×4 adaptive technology. The Opel Insignia OPC can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in six seconds.

Opel says that the Insignia OPC can be easily differentiated from the standard version thanks to the deeper front bumper which as twin intakes on either side of the main grille, to the rear spoiler, to the dual matt chrome exhausts, to the Brembo ventilated braking system or to the 19-inch or optional 20-inch lightweight forged alloy wheels.

The three-door Opel Corsa OPC on the other hand is getting a 1.6 liter turbocharged engine under its hood, which is producing a total output of 141 kW and it has a peak torque of 260 Nm. The unit is mated to a six-speed manual transmission and the 0 to 100 km/h sprint takes 7.2 seconds. More details on the two models aimed towards Australia will be announced next year in March, when they will arrive in showrooms.
