If built, the car would feature a RWD configuration and the choice of either GM’s 3.6L 265hp HFV6 or a 6.0L V8 engine with 365hp on tap. There are still several key decisions to be made, first of which is whether the car will even enter production. Last month Opel boss Carl-Peter Forster commented that Opel will not produce a model positioned above the upcoming Vectra range, but, according to Germany’s AutoZeitung, execs are considering green lighting the project.
To ensure its success, the new model may be designed as a new crossover or MPV in a similar style to the Insignia crossover from 2003. There are also suggestions that it won’t be called the Omega and that it could be produced in Australia in limited numbers.
