2013 Frankfurt Motor Show: 2014 Opel Insignia OPC Facelift [Live Photos]

Article by Christian Andrei, on September 16, 2013

The 2014 Insignia OPC Facelift from Opel was presented at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show (IAA). Making the sporty all-wheel drive model more interesting are its redesigned front bumper, new headlights, a restyled rear bumper and signature OPC design elements like saber-tooth detailing at the front and the tailpipe trim incorporated in the rear.

In addition, the 2014 Insignia OPC has a re-worked rear axle, where engineers revised about 60% of its components. Furthermore, Opel decreased its noise and vibration. Opel utilized new ESP software that allows for more precision in dynamic tuning. Roadholding is improved thanks to the new damper software for the FlexRide chassis with adjustable shock absorbers.

The 2014 Insignia OPC is powered by the same 2.8-liter V6 turbo engine that has an output of 325 hp and 435 Nm of torque, sent to the road via an all-wheel drive system that offers Haldex coupling and an electronic limited slip differential. This enables the Insignia OPC to accelerate from zero to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 6.0 seconds (with the Sports Tourer doing the sprint in 6.3 seconds) and to hit a top speed of 250 km/h (electronically limited).

The unrestricted Insignia OPC with manual transmission offers a top speed of 270 km/h (Sports Tourer 265 km/h). It has also been fitted with a Brembo braking system to ensure rapid deceleration with maximum stability.

The interior features Recaro performance seats that are offered in leather as an option, OPC gearshift knob, a new main instrument panel and center console. Furthermore, it comes with an optional 8-inch instrument readout display that informs the driver about details such as oil pressure and temperature, battery voltage, throttle position, brake power and the g-force as a result of lateral acceleration.
