Vauxhall Omega launched in the UK

Well equipped, comfortable. 4,787mm (15' 8") long x 1,960mm (6' 5") wide. 150 mph 207 bhp 3.0 MV6 was almost good value by UK standards at list price of £24,445. Big at 15' 10" long and 5' 10" wide (6' 5" with mirrors). Also heavy, from 1,410kg to 1,808kg. Manual boxes better suited to engines than Senator manuals. Get a white, grey or otherwise dark coloured one and the cars in front will still think you are a police car.
