Opel launches the Insignia GSi, a sports version pending OPC. It already has quite a few arguments, to consume by its chrono on the Nürburgring. She did 12s better than the old Insignia OPC.
The Insignia GSi thus becomes a sports car driven by an Ecotec L4 2.0 L petrol engine with 260 hp and a torque of 400 Nm. The engine is associated with an eight-speed BVA with steering wheel-mounted paddles. In “Full Automatic” mode, the driver can preset two modes of management of the BVA, namely Standard and Sport.
Compared to its predecessor, the Insignia GSi lost 160 kilos, which explains in part its greater velocity on circuit. Its hood houses a 2.0-liter 2.0-liter turbocharged 260 hp and 400 Nm of torque. This engine sends its power to the four wheels via the “intelligent” all-wheel drive. It is also associated with an eight-speed automatic transmission with paddles on the steering wheel. But alas, as we said above, the car will not be sold in France.
