For their latest project Italian tuner Romeo Ferraris went for a German/British car, Opel Insignia OPC.
This might be an Opel/Vauxhall, but that OPC badge makes all the difference. The car, in its standard form, has 325 hp out of its 2.8 liter V6. Romeo, with a bit of adjustments to the car’s ECU, raises that to 375 hp.
The electronic treatment also boosts the torque of the Insignia from 435 Nm up to 515 Nm. That’s a rather significant amount of torque. A direct result of that is enhanced 0 to 100 km/h acceleration, which is now 5.6 seconds.
Romeo claims despite the boost in power, fuel consumption is not affected if you drive responsibly.
By the looks of things Romeo has done nothing to the car’s exterior or interior. But then why would they. This OPC is a handsome car and fiddling with it could very well ruin it.
