This Opel Insignia OPC Sports Tourer was spied without any cammo whatsoever. Not that there is much to hide anymore since the sedan is already in the public domain. The Insignia OPC/ VXR Sports Tourer will be the third body style in a range that includes a 4-door sedan and a 5-door hatch.

Powered by a 2.8-litre ECOTEC V6 with a single twin-scroll turbo, the car makes 325hp (239kW) and has a 6-speed manual gearbox. Its 0 - 60 sprint time will be close to the sedan's 5.8 seconds and so will the top speed. These cars have been honed at the Nurburgring so their handling attributes should at least match segment rivals.

The sedan is fitted with 19-inch wheels in standard garb while the 20-inch rim is optional. Because this is the high-performance Opel, the most powerful car in the lot, "sports" items are all over the show. There are Recaro seats, OPC/ VXR labels on the gear lever and steering wheel, and colour-combinations that are exclusive to the model.

Opel starts selling the Insignia OPC/ VXR sedan this coming autumn. Pricing will be announced then. Fans of the Sports Tourer version will not have to wait too long for their cars after that.

Exactly! Look at the designs of Megane-Astra-Kia Ceed-I30-Impreza and you'll find them quit same. It means that creative component is lost in car industry and only they left is to guess what clientele might to look for. It goes to the basics of that crisis: car makers have nothing to say or give.

i would make the OPC a 2.8 twin turbo cranking 420 hp. that would be the ultimate contender for the m3 sedan and rs4.

Red whale? Ok, if you say so.... Anyway, this looks good after all, but I would still think the Saloon will always be better.
