If you’re not a fan of Opel’s OPC arm, then you’re most likely not a “car guy” (or “car gal”). Luckily, the GM Authority crew lives, breathes, and dreams cars; and if the car is fast, beautiful, or both –like an OPC — then all the better.
Speaking of which, here are a few facts about OPC:
- It’s an independent subsidiary (a GmbH) of Opel and is responsible for the planning, development, and operation of all motorsport activities for Opel and Vauxhall
- Its managing director is German race car driver Volker Strycek. It’s him that you sometimes see testing the various Opels and GM vehicles on the Nürburgring
- Its German tagline is “Dynamik. Leistung. Pure Passion” — translating into “Dynamic. Performance. Pure Passion”
- Vauxhall calls its versions of OPC models VXR
And that brings us to the trivia question of the week: what does OPC stand for? Now now — no cheating. Don’t even think about opening that Google window! Yes, we’re looking at you! Talk to us in the comments — we’ll update this post with the correct answer at 20:00 EST today. Toodles!
