Steinmetz and Klasen Motors set a new speed record for a street-legal Opel vehicle with its modified version of the Insignia Sports Tourer OPC – making it officially the fastest Opel ever made. The record speed, set in mid-October at Nardo, Italy, came in at 178.6 mph.
While Steinmetz took care of much of the visual modifications, Klasen Motors added a bigger turbocharger, new exhaust and a retuned intercooler and reprogrammed the ECU. That brings total output of the Opel Insignia Sports Tourer OPC to 400-hp with a peak torque of 406 lb-ft.
Make the jump for the press release.

World Record in Nardo
For the tuning elite, the dates of 18/19 October 2009 represented a very special time in the calendar:
the High Performance Event by Continental and Auto Bild SportsCars in Nardo.
Nardo – an oval over 12 km, on which speeds far above 250 km/h can be – and are – achieved!
For Steinmetz Opel-Tuning and Klasen Motors, the ideal place for breaking the existing speed world record for a road-legal Opel… and for setting a new record of 287.4 km/h.
