Opel Omega BOpel Omega (Russian "Opel Omega") — the German car of a business class which was issued division of GM Opel corporation from 1986 to 2003.
The model is continuation of Opel Omega A. The external design and an interior, aerodynamics and equipment of the car were improved.
To the list of the maximum complete set of the Omega stated above And increased: two-zonal climate control, the autoproofreader of headlights, regular xenon light, a back sun-protection blind, musical system 4+1 with a CD changer, leather salon. The maximum complete set of Opel Omega B is marked as MV6 and surely goes with the V6 engine volume 2.5l and more. In 1999 Omega B was subjected to restyling. In appearance the form of a luggage carrier and back lamps (they became more modern), and also a cowl and a forward weather-cloth was changed (the front grille, for example, was now an integral part of a cowl). Also body details began to process in addition industrially (to zinc) at the expense of what corrosion resistance of a body and its details increased.
The main changes were undergone by a line of engines and an interior.
Engines "chiseled" a little (increased working volume) and saved from the "children's" problems inherent in the previous models of Ecotec engines (for example, the module of ignition and candle wires on V6 were replaced with two-component modules which contacted directly to spark plugs). Diesel engines of the last years of release were equipped with the Common Rail system. At the same time because Opel had no 2,5 liters suitable diesel, these engines bought from BMW.
The interior as well as the exterior, was modernized — more chopped lines, is slightly more than plastic and indicators. There was a full-fledged multifunctional wheel. The on-board computer could be ordered in color execution with navigation. Sensors of light and a rain were included in the maximum package also now.
Also in 2000 planned to present the new y57xe motor from chevrolet corvette (ls1 engine) 16-valvate v-shaped the 8th the cylinder motor with the 4-staged automatic transmission from the same chevrolet corvette, received an index at OPEL AG and VAUXHALL ar60. The model was planned how the competitor of BMW 540 in a body e39, audi a6 and Mercedes-Benzs e-klasse for lower price, were even printed brochures, but several weeks prior to statement on production, the managements of OPEL refused this motor, motivating it with the weak cooling system which could not provide to this engine worthy cooling on high-speed German autobahns. Actually the management of GM EUROPE did not wish to do to the CADILLAC pushed to Europe of the competitor and hardly new OMEGA V8 would raise sales level.
