Vygor Opera crossover breaks cover

Article by Christian Andrei, on October 12, 2011

This is the first time that the Vygor Opera is clearly seen with the release of these undisguised images. This is the first product from the new manufacturer based in Tuscany, Italy, that specializes in handcrafted cars. The company asserts that this two-door Vygor Opera crossover will offer the comfort of a SUV and the fun similar to driving a GT. Vygor wants the Opera to be customized according to each buyer’s bespoke requirements.

For instance, different performance options will be available, with a range of 295bhp to 395bhp. However, the transmission will continue to be permanent four-wheel-drive in all cases.

The Opera features a tubular frame built from high-strength steel and a body composed of composites and steel, resulting to a weight of about 1500kg. This car comes with adjustable double-wishbone suspension and buyers get to choose from wheels that range from 18-inch to 22-inch. Vygor said that production will be restricted to 150 units.

It was back in October when Opera first unveiled its luxury crossover. After that, Italy’s very own Vygor has come out with an upgraded version and included extra specification as well as pricing details. As seen, it is clear that the Opera.2 is more luxury-focused compared to Opera.1. Vygor however emphasizes that it is possible to customize their vehicles in order to meet the demands of its customers.

The new model is 16 feet long, 6.5 feet wide, and 5.4 feet tall. However the wheelbase is barely 10 feet with total weight coming in at 3,483 pounds. Powering this Opera is the turbocharged four-cylinder 2.0-liter engine with output at 420 horsepower. Acceleration from 0 to 60 mph is possible in merely 4.9 seconds with maximum speed measured at 155 mph. Paired to the engine is the automatic six-speed transmission with sequential shifting.

Fitted to it are wheels having diameters between 18 inches and 22 inches. Standard equipment includes the Brembo brakes. All models though will have the tubular chassis which has an Ohlins adjustable suspension and will be made out of high-strength steel. The front will have a Torsen differential while the rear is fitted with the electronic limited slip differential. On the interior, one can see the many luxurious features like the use of hand-crafted leather for the trim.

There is also what is known as power everything and there is even the navigation system with the 7-inch display that has touch screen capability. For those who want the opportunity to own an Opera, price starts at 140,000 euros, which is around $192,000. While it is equipped with the standard engine, it is possible to upgrade it through Terrosi and see output go as high as 300 hp, 350 hp, or even 420 hp.
