1982 Opel Senator Review
Straight Six Symphony — Explosive surge of torque and power on every demand at every speed! Great brakes - upgradeable to 296mm easily! Superb handling, very acknowledging and predictable, but the grip can snap an disappear in a moment... Unique quality! Needs repair of suspension every 10 or 20 years :))) some parts such as rear bushings: never! Not a single sound from the suspension and interior!!! 500.000 initial warranty of the drivetrain! Excellent classic design! Outstanding silk plush inside and the best comfort! Gas mileage moderate in the town, high on the road! Maintenance: none! Only injectors prone to obstruction, and engine demanding high quality oil. Fun factor is to the absolute maximum! As well as the pleasure factor and every other factor!
Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)
Pros: Fast, responsive 3.0 lithe inline-6 180 bhp engine, low weight: 1370 kilos, perfect ride, etc., etc, etc...
Cons: NONE... well... maybe rust... I would rather not recomend it to a friend... because I want to buy all of the Senators that are left out there and own them forever!
