Vauxhall Omega

The Vauxhall Omega was an executive car produced by the German automaker Opel between 1986 and 2003. Successor to the Opel Rekord, it was voted European Car of the Year for 1987. The Omega was produced at Rüsselsheim in Germany and available as both a sedan and an estate (Caravan). In Brazil it was sold under the Chevrolet Omega and Suprema (Caravan) nameplates, while in North America it was sold as the Cadillac Catera from 1997 to 2001. The Omega is best known in the United Kingdom as a police car, though following the ending of production the Vauxhall Vectra has taken over that role. It was also produced as a limousine and a hearse for use at funerals. When released, the Omega was fitted with a variety of engines ranging from four cylinder petrol and diesel engines, to more powerful V6 units. The top of the range Omega came with a 3.0 L V6 and was the most expensive Vauxhall/Opel on the market at £30,000. Variants were offered with a 5 speed manual and 4 speed automatic transmission. Reworked in 1999, an additional 2.2 L 16-valve engine was added to the range and replaced the 2.0 L version. The 3.0 L V6 engine was replaced with a 2.6 L unit and the 3.2 L ‘MV6’. As the Ford Scorpio was discontinued, the Omega's status in the market was unclear. Unable to compete with its traditional rivals, the car instead had to focus on the BMW 5 Series, however, it was never a serious challenger to this market leader. In 2003, production of the Omega B ended, with only Vauxhall's Vectra Caravan and Signum filling the subsequent role of Omega.
