Opel builds cars with a unique claim:
Best performance - best agility - with the highest degree of safety. That’s why we not only guarantee our engineers and test drivers ideal conditions for testing technologies, test vehicles and prototypes. We also put the Opel Test Center itself to the test again and again.
Everyone has their own driving style or even expectations for a car. It is our goal to exceed every expectation. We want to inspire and enthuse.
Many of our certified innovations set global standards. On our over 80 km test track at the Opel Test Center we put our goals and your expectations to the test: More fun. More safety.
Dynamics test area with a diameter of 300 m. An integral part of an open 2 km long straight shot. Perfect to learn how to handle curves at hazardous conditions.
4.8 km long circular track with up to 40 degree cross slope and three brake stops – for full stops at high speeds.
Slopes from 8% to 30%. Various road surfaces. An endurance test for steering, transmission and brakes. Following our test principle: “cause and effect”.
Oval course with two U-turns and two long straight shots. Any questions on dynamics will be answered by car and driver.
900 meters of extreme potholes, bumps, washboards, various cobblestones, concrete waves. A ruthless endurance test for material and workmanship.
Almost a miniature Nordschleife: 16 curves and swales. Uphill – downhill: on minimum space. Steep demands for material, workmanship, technologies … and driving ability.
Ruthless check of our various surfaces: asphalt, cobblestones, bumps and curves. Plus many special programmes: mud baths, dust track, salt water bath, ... every weak point will be tested.
More than ten different road surfaces for the evaluation of spring and damping comfort as well as interior noise control.
