Lots of car for little money!

In September 1977, at the IAA in Frankfurt, visitors to the fair surrounded the Opel stand. The Opel Senator, as the new flagship, returned to the premium upper class. Unlike all predecessors of the Opel luxury class, the late 1970s showed adapted understatement. Influenced by the oil crisis, automobile status symbols were often the subject of public criticism.
The 4.80 metre long Senator, with its large windows and low beltline, displayed a visually lightweight noblesse. The 3.0 litre fuel-injected engine with 180 hp put the Senator in the headlines of the automotive press as the quietest three-litre passenger car. Opel captured a third of the German luxury class market. Compared to a correspondingly equipped BMW 730i, the Senator was up to 10,000 Marks cheaper. Already in 1979 Opel reached a production record with almost 970,000 units (Senator and Monza). With the energy crisis came Opel’s first post-war red figures. From 1982 onwards there was an aerodynamically improved facelift combined with an extended engine range. Inexpensive four-cylinder petrol / diesel engines completed the range. Among them was the four-cylinder injection engine with 2.2 litre displacement and 115 hp.
The mass market for individual model series from the premium segment became increasingly difficult. Opel discontinued production of the Senator without replacement in 1993.
