Additional Info: Uses the Opel Senator as it’s base. Originally had a 177bhp 3.0 engine, that later got modified (1983/84) and increased to 3.9 litres. An automatic was also available. First seen as a prototype coupe in 1979 with actual production I believe starting in 1981 and running until 1989. Note: some sources have production ending in 1986?. There were around 460 coupes, 5 four door saloons and 22 convertibles built. Variable performance stats and auto’s are a little slower than the manual cars.
