Built between 1965 and 1967, the Opel Diplomat Coupé was Opel’s crowning
achievement of the mid-1960s. With a length of almost 5
metres and a 230 hp 5.4 litre V8 engine, it could easily give the top-of-the-range Mercedes-Benz models a run for their money. At its
launch in 1965 it cost DM 25,500, placing it in the same price category as luxury vehicles like the Mercedes-Benz 280 Pagoden-SL or
the Porsche 911. Unfortunately, the sales figures did not meet expectations and only 347 of these splendid vehicles were produced at
the Karmann facility in Osnabrück before production was discontinued in July 1967. Today, the Opel Diplomat A Coupé is highly sought
after among collectors – vehicles in good condition fetch a price tag of more than 200,000 euros.
