Opel facelifts Insignia OPC

German automaker Opel will be showcasing at next month’s IAA in Frankfurt, Germany the facelifted Insignia OPC lineup. The V6 2.8-liter turbocharged engine will be carried over virtually untouched as it will continue to produce 325 HP and a maximum torque of 321 lb-ft. This power will be transferred to an all-wheel drive arrangement that includes an electronic limited slip differential and Haldex coupling. This facelifted version comes with mildly updated front and rear fascias, but also with a few chassis tweaks by as Opel worked on the rear axle. They mention vibrations and noise levels have been reduced as well.

2013 Opel Insignia OPC facelift-1

The 2013 Opel Insignia OPC facelift will benefit from a tweaked ESP system meant to handle understeer tendencies better than before, while the modified damper software should improve the car’s handling capabilities. 0-100 km/h should take 6 seconds for the sedan and 6.3 seconds for the Tourer model. Both of them can hit an electronically-limited top speed of 250 km/h. The unrestricted variant of the sedan will do 270 km/h.

The interior cabin features Recaro sport seats, redesigned steering wheel with shift levers (for the automatic model), as well as a generous 8-inch display which shows the driver all the info necessary.
