1993 Lotus Omega
In 1986 General Motors bought Lotus and to celebrate this acquisition, Lotus and Opel would develop a special edition together. The starting point of this collaboration was a Opel Omega 3000, the fastest Omega for sale at that time. The result was the quickest 4-door you could buy in the early ‘90s.
The 3L inline six was increased to 3.6L and two Garrett T25 Turbo’s were installed to give it an extra punch. The result of all the modifications were amazing: 377 hp & 568Nm! With all this power, Lotus installed the six speed manual gearbox from a Corvette ZR-1 to handle all the power.
Production was limited to only 950 cars and this specific car is #322. All cars were finished in Imperial Green and the original paint on this car still looks very presentable, only the hood has been repainted to address rock chips. The original bumpers show a little wear and so do the side skirts.
The interior still look as new. The leather seats still look great with no rips, fading or tears. The original radio still works as it should, so do all the other electric features.
Mechanically everything is in great shape too. With only 82.000 km the car still drives awesome. At 73.000 km’s, the top end was fully rebuild by Lotus and the Turbo’s were slightly modified. At the same time the catalyst converters were replaced as well. Total cost was 10.000 EUR.
Overall this car is in great original shape and ready to be enjoyed by a new owner.
