He simply did not understand why his fast Alpha, flying along the track of the legendary Targa Florio race in the mountains of Sicily, could not tear itself away from some bulky carriage.

Here, even the spirits of their ancestors - the Italian champions - will not help. After all, this is the fastest serial van in the world: 240 “horses”, 7.8 s in acceleration to hundreds! He also has wheels “sticky” to the road 235 / 35ZR19, hefty brake discs with a diameter of 321 mm in front and 278 mm at the rear, adaptive chassis IDS Plus2, six-speed gearbox, Recaro bucket seats and speedometer up to 260 km / h! Yes boy! Not everyone copes with such an adversary. Remember for the future this characteristic blue color of Arden Blue and the name “Opel Zafira OPC” …

CHARGING IN GERMAN

Of course, a spacious seven-seater minivan with such characteristics is an exception. Where more often a powerful motor and sports chassis are covered with lighter and more compact bodies. "Astra OPC" of the same division of the company (OPC - Opel Performance Center, in the free translation "Opel Finalization Center") - with the same 2-liter engine of 240 hp accelerates to hundreds in just 6.4 s. Dynamics is a delight! It is worth stepping on the pedal, throws the tachometer needle to the right, juicy hoarse notes cut through the roar of the engine, the front wheels begin to squeak in a metered slip, and presses the shoulder blades into the back of the seat!

At the "Opel-Astra ORS" - electro-hydraulic power steering and chassis control system IDS Plus (Interactive Driving System). It integrates ESP stabilization systems, TC, traction control, ABS, the Brace Assistant and CDC (Continuous Damping Control), an adaptive control of shock absorbers that change characteristics depending on the road and driving style. But all this electronics is in no hurry with the intervention, allowing the driver to feel the limit of possibilities - his own and the car. It was not for nothing that the driver of the DTM, Manuel Reuter, participated in the refinement of the car. And if you are completely confident in yourself, it is not necessary to wait for the electronics to work. Press the “Sport” button and all the settings will become as rigid as possible, and the steering wheel and electronic pedals will become very sensitive. Recently, Opel already has IDS Plus2. The second generation device is installed on the "Zafira OPC" and "Vectra OPC".

For the latter, we prepared a power unit more seriously, but slightly less forced - a V-shaped “six” with a volume of 2.8 liters develops 255 hp. Adjustable valve timing provides powerful traction at any speed - maximum torque 355 N.m - in the range of 1800–4500 rpm. There is no need to go through gears of a six-speed gearbox once again. As a result: acceleration to 100 km / h in 6.7 s, top speed 260 km / h! You can increase the efficiency of the engine, but for a front-wheel drive car of the middle class 250 hp - a reasonable limit. There is no point in overstepping it: the front wheels are unloaded during acceleration and, breaking into a slip, simply can not realize the excess power.

It is curious that the Vectra Caravan station wagon received the same charge from ODS. You cannot expect such a crazy temperament from a “shed” under 5 meters long!

FAMILY FEATURES

Models from OPC are similar, like brothers, not only by the explosive nature and chassis settings, but also by design elements. Family-wide features: diamond-shaped headlights, trims of radiator grilles, bumpers with wide open air intakes, "leather-aluminum" salons, Rekaro deep seats, chubby three-spoke steering wheels. The synchronous nod of the arrows on the dashboard is beautiful when the ignition is turned on - to the maximum and vice versa: the beast has started!

However, these "Opel" are still not "clean" sports cars from those that are poorly adapted for everyday driving. They are quite comfortable in quiet driving modes, richly equipped and no less practical than the "civilian" versions. Of course, low-profile wheels and reduced clearance by 15 mm will make you be careful on potholes. But how many are there in Europe? But Russian buyers should be reminded of this - after all, the charged modifications from the Opel Performance Center have already begun to be sold in Russia. Prices at the time of preparation of the material have not yet been determined. For reference, I’ll cite the German: Astra ORS - 28 thousand euros, Zafira ORS - 32.5 thousand, Vectra ORS - 37.8 thousand, Vectra Caravan ORS - 38.6 thousand euros.

Well, if you do not like the blue color - do not worry. In 2005, the color palette of bodies expanded and now looks and sounds like color music - Arden Blue, Star Silver, Sapphire Black, Magma Red …

WHAT IS ORS?

For homologation of certain classes of sports cars in the German Motorsport, there is a minimum circulation requirement of 2.5 thousand units. Special units of auto giants produce a limited series of charged cars, which diverge among athletes and amateurs. In 1997, the Opel company formed the Opel Performance Center, and two years later the 2-liter Astra came out with a 160-horsepower engine, which sold three thousand copies. In 2002, the power was increased to 200 hp. - 3500 have already made such machines. The success of the charged versions has pushed to expand the gamut. The same engine was equipped with 500 Astra station wagons, the engine and Zafira came up. In 2005, the lineup of models was updated and expanded.
