OPC Opel?????

I never thought i would say this but i really like the new OPC Insignia from OPEL! Particularly the Estate/tourer!!!!!! Although the rear end could be better i think as an all round family fast sedan or estate for the money its an excellent car!

4wd and loads of power , quite good looks and very decent price.
Here is a vid:

And here are some specs:
325 hp/239 kW, 435 Nm 2.8-liter V6 Turbo engine for maximum power. It features high-tech elements, like a lower, reworked mechatronic chassis with FlexRide, an Adaptive 4x4 transmission with an electronic rear limited slip differential (eLSD) and purpose-built Brembo brakes - all complemented by spacious station wagon functionality with 1530 liters of load capacity.The unit comes with a six-speed manual transmission, enabling acceleration from zero to 100 in 6.3 seconds and a top speed of 250 km/h (restricted).

"Lo there do I see my father.
Lo there do I see my mother.
Lo there do I see my brothers and my sisters.
Lo there do I see the line of my people back to the beginning.
Lo they do call to me
they bid me take my place among them in the Halls of Valhalla,
where the brave may live forever"

I always liked Opel and their designs on some models. This one looks really good.
