We sing the bituroboff Lotus Omega: Even the police fear it!

When Lotus conjured the peaceful Opel Omega in 1990, things happened, in fact it was almost banned! We take the wildest Opel of them all for a spin.

I watch how the black Omega is pulled through the hall on what can best be described as a pallet truck for cars, Bil Magasinet writes. Two round gripper arms have taken hold of the car's front wheel, and they are now guiding the imposing Opel almost soundlessly through the room at Opel's huge Classic department in Rüsselsheim. The gate at the end of the hall opens, and together with the Omega I step out into the sunlight, which reveals that the car is not black at all. It is collard green – also known as "Imperial Green". A color that was only used on 907 copies of the rare Lotus Omega, and this is exactly the one I'm looking at. Pay attention to the tight coupling. The car's permanent mechanic lifts the car off the pallet lift, turns some, after which the engine starts. The sound from the two square exhaust pipes is low and deep. – The only thing you have to remember is that the clutch is somewhat tighter than on an Omega 3000, he says with a relaxed smile. I open the door and am greeted by a sporty business cabin with wrinkled leather, thick mats and a square design. Everything stands as if in an untouched mausoleum from a bygone era. The test car is part of the Opel factory's own car collection, which also explains the extremely low mileage of only 6,500 km. Just remember that this car is 28 years old. The wrinkled leather seats are therefore not worn. That's just how luxury leather seats were made back in the 90s. Click 'NEXT PAGE' to read on
