The Opel Insignia OPC is powered by a 2.8 V6 Turbo engine allowing for 325-hp and a peak torque of 295 lb-ft. That allows the Opel Insignia OPC (which is the 255-hp Buick Regal GS on the stateside without the V6) to go from 0 to 62 mph in 6 seconds with a top speed of 155 mph.

But what if you’re traveling on the Autobahn and want to go faster than 155 mph? For that, Opel today announced the Opel Insignia OPC Unlimited, which removes the electronically-restricted top speed and pushes it to 168 mph.

“We are responding to frequently expressed customer wishes,” says Alain Visser, Vice President Sales, Marketing and Aftersales at Adam Opel AG. “Insignia OPC buyers are generally experienced and responsible drivers who want to enjoy the full technical possibilities of their car.”

The new Opel Insignia OPC Unlimited can be distinguished from the regular Insignia OPC by its blue Brembo logo and a newly-designed tachometer and speedometer. Opel is also planning a special edition of the model with matte black wrapping.

Sales of the Opel Insignia OPC Unlimited will start later this month with prices starting at 48,605 euros ($70,124 USD) for the four-door notchback with a manual transmission.

All we ask is, please plan a Buick Regal GS with 325-hp.
