Omega Evo 500, 1991 “Volker Strycek, now head of the Opel Performance Center, and Franz Engstler started the German Touring Car Championship in 1991 in this ‘evolution model.’ I still remember how I went to one of the first races on the AVUS in Berlin after the Wall had fallen. I had just gotten my driving license and my first car, a Kadett C. But I drove to the race in an Omega. We had this model reconstructed for our anniversary by the same employees who had been responsible for designing it back then.”
