2011 Opel Vectra OPC

Specifications prices Modifications and Image 2011 Opel Vectra OPC
Punching out 188 kilowatts of power - about 255 ponies - the new Vectra OPC is the quickest and most powerful vehicle on display at Opel's Frankfurt Motor Show exhibit.

In addition to the new Astra TwinTop and the prototypical Antara GTC, Opel showed off its performance-oriented Vectra model at the German auto show, equipped with a turbocharged 6-cylinder engine that may pique the interest of Holden fans.

In the past, Opel's Vectra - or the Holden Vectra as it's known locally - has been available with 6-cylinder powerplants, but this new turbocharged model is set to increase the tempo somewhat, competing with cars such as the BMW 330i and the Volvo S40 T5.

In addition to the OPC Vectra's increased brawn, the trendy new model also gets a new suit, elevating the vehicle both mechanically and visually beyond its predecessors.
Revealing the latest car tuning work from JMS is the Opel Vectra C OPC station wagon, and it has a sporty look for the modifications it received. JMS started off by lowering the car, so they installed H&R springs on the front which lowered it 45 mm, and the rear dropped by 35 mm. The lowering springs cost 198 euros and will work the factory shock absorbers of the Opel Vectra C OPC. Completing the exterior styling are Barracuda Velvet racing wheels measuring 19�8.5 and 19�9.5 in the rear. High performance tires were fitted, and the front received 245/35/19, while the rear rims are wrapped in 255/35/19 tires. The complete wheel and tire package is priced at 2,200 euros and JMS also offers an electronic engine tuning package for 799 euros. After the engine recalibration, the Opel Vectra C OPC has final performance numbers of 285 hp and 480 Nm of torque.
With a 260km/h top speed, the new Vectra OPC eclipses the maximum speed of many of Europe's better known prestige brands, often limited to 250km/h, and though no specific stats were provided, Opel is adamant the vehicle will sprint from 0-100km/h in less than 7.0 seconds - which is pretty quick for a mid sized vehicle.

The front-wheel drive's impressive performance comes from its new V6 engine, a motor that's increasingly being put to use by General Motor's various brands, one such example being Saab. The 2.8-litre V6 gasoline engine is fed increased amounts of air via a twin-scroll turbocharger, and together with variable valve timing it helps liberate a useful 355Nm of torque. Peak power is 188kW (255hp).

Effortless acceleration in almost any gear from very low revs will be courtesy of a very flat torque curve that the turbo engine creates, while the 6-speed manual transmission, which ships as standard with the Vectra OPC, will ensure rapid take offs and lofty top speeds.
The Vectra OPC and Vectra station wagon OPC offer their drivers even more safety and comfort with the Visibility Package, Park Pilot and Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS). And there is good news for automatic transmission fans: the 206 kW/280 hp 2.8-liter V6 turbo in both Vectra OPC models is now available with a six-speed
automatic gearbox for the first time. As with the manual transmission versions, the top speed is electronically limited to 250 km/h.
