OPC Performance

Before taking to the road, all Opel OPC models are pushed to their limits with a 10 000 kilometre test under the harshest conditions on the Nürburgring race track in Germany.


There the OPC engineers bring together a dynamic combination of high performance and Opel precision. World respected partners such as Recaro and Brembo combine with Opel’s own cutting edge engine and chassis technology.


It is a special mixture of excellence. Balanced, tested and proven through the skill, enthusiasm and sheer professionalism of Opel specialists.


Go ahead, take OPC to the limit.
