1991 Opel Lotus Omega For Sale by Auction

ESTIMATE €70,000-€80,000 Schloss Dyck 2019 LOT DETAILS Lot Number 131 Chassis Number SCC000019M1284656 Year 1991 Make Opel Model Lotus Omega DESCRIPTION Take a pedestrian executive car and hand it to the Lotus engineers at Hethel to work their magic and the end result is a 377bhp super saloon able to hold its head high against rivals from the BMW M sport and Mercedes Benz AMG. The base 3-litre twin overhead camshaft 24 valve engine was bored and stroked to 3.6 litres, Lotus strengthened the block, upgraded the cylinder head, replaced the crankshaft, pistons and connecting rods and bolted on a pair of Garrett T25 turbochargers with intercoolers. With the Opel/Vauxhall standard gearbox unable to handle the huge additional torque (419 lb-ft), ZFs 6-speed enabled the Lotus Omega to accelerate from 0-60 mph in 5.2 seconds, 0-100 in an astonishing 11.1 seconds and going on to a top speed of 186 mph (achieved in 5th rather than 6th gear) , a controversial figure, given that almost all of its rivals adhered to a gentleman's agreement restricting the top speed of their super saloons to 155 mph. Obviously, with Lotus reputation for producing sweet-handling cars, they transformed the handling of the car, converting the rear suspension from an inferior semi-trailing arm set up to a multi-link setup offering vastly superior geometry. Fitment of 17" Ronal alloys enabled Lotus to squeeze in larger vented brake discs and four-pot calipers. With a limited slip differential and larger tyres, the Super Omega/Carlton was now more than capable of handling all that additional power. Only produced from 1990 until 1992, a total of 950 Lotus Omega/Carltons were ever built. 1 of only 415 models produced for the German market, this incredible 1991 Lotus Omega has never been registered on the road in its 28 years. The Omega shows a mere 375 kilometers from new, having been stored very carefully by our vendor, and of course used extremely sparingly. As you can imagine the Lotus is presented in factory fresh condition. An amazing opportunity to own not only a piece of motoring history but effectively a genuinely brand new modern Lotus Omega, an opportunity not to be missed.View 1991 Opel Lotus Omega For Sale on Coys.co.uk for further details.
