Opel may still have a rocky road ahead of it on the path to profitability, but the brand still has plenty to celebrate; the 750,000th Opel Insignia just rolled off the line at the Rüsselsheim plant in Germany earlier today.
The Insignia in-question is the top-of-the-line OPC variant in the Sport Tourer body, shod in Arden Blue – an OPC-exclusive shade. It’s a stout performer, propelled by a turbocharged V6 pumping 325 HP to all four wheels.
In an official press release, Opel CEO Karl-Thomas Neumann said: “The Insignia is our flagship and thereby our brand’s figurehead. With this car, we show what we are capable of in terms of design, technology and quality.” We concur; we can’t think of a better car to reach this impressive milestone with than the top-spec Opel flagship.
The first-generation Opel Insignia won the European “Car of the Year” in 2009, and since it was replaced with a new generation in 2013, the Insignia has gone on to become Opel’s fourth best-selling model. The automaker reports that last year alone, Opel saw the sale of more than 100,000 examples of the flagship.
