The slogan of "Faster, Higher, Stronger!" It's time to cancel – in the world have long been subject to all the other motto: "Faster, faster, faster!". Today, no one strikes when people are bringing in potatoes problem on the Lancer Evo, standing in traffic jams on the 500-strong Porsche Cayenne or pick up children from school on a 240-strong minivans. If people have always followed this logic, it would be in the Middle Ages drove horses to hell and became the plow to the cheetah – they faster! In 1997, Opel guys have understood that the delay can not go on, and if neotlagatelno not create their racing division, then it will be too late.

Even when the tachometer needle is at 1000 rev / min, Vectra pulls well, but costs more to put pressure on the pedal, the machine breaks down rapidly forward. Up to 100 km / h OPC accelerates in 6.9 seconds – 0.3 seconds slower than younger sister Astra OPC. By the way, even though the car and charged the full, it is not exhausting in city traffic. Six-speed runs with such ease that even a long tube is not able to make the driver feel sorry that the machine does not "Automatic."
