After revealing the four-door version of the factory tuned Insignia OPC, the German automaker Opel is also readying a version of their Insignia Sports Tourer for the Opel Performance Center treatment. The sedan will go on sale this fall, and the Sports Tourer should follow shortly after.

The OPC cars will be powered by a 2.8 Liter ECOTEC V6 with a single twin-scroll turbo, that reduces turbo lag and increases performance, resulting in a maximum output of 325 HP. The six cylinder engine is shifted via a six speed manual gearbox, and when shifted correctly allows the vehicles to reach 60 MPH in just 5.8 seconds.

Exterior treatment for the OPC sedan includes a new body kit highlighted by the new front bumper and owner’s choice of either 19 or 20 inch wheels.

FYI: The Opel Performance Center (abbreviated as OPC) is a subsidiary of General Motors’ German Opel subsidiary, founded in 1997 to oversee Opel’s motorsports activities and develop performance versions of Opel vehicles. It performs a similar role to Holden’s HSV unit, but it is even more similar to Ford’s American Special Vehicle Team. The OPC operates as a separate German GmbH, based in Rüsselsheim (Opel’s home town).

I can’t wait to see this red riding hood in full blow ups.

Hey, this is the first time this production-ready car was spotted, complete with a griffin badge on the bonnet and the chrome-rimmed nostrils lifted from the VXR saloon.

Autoexpress says that due to go on sale alongside the saloon variant before the end of the year, the Insignia VXR Sports Tourer will be a performance bargain – starting from around £27,000.
