The 10/24 PS was a car produced by the high-end car manufacturer German Opel from 1911 to 1916.

Profile and History

Introduced in 1911 as a replacement for the 10/18 PS. Compared to its predecessor, the 10/24 PS abandoned some solutions extravagant, first of all the available two pairs of his engine to 4 cylinders, in favor of a more conventional and easily available online.

This engine remained, however, the displacement of 2614 cc power unit that already characterized the previous model. This side-valve engine produced an almighty power up to 24 hp at 1550 rev / min.

The transmission was in drive shaft with clutch cone and change 4 speed.

The chassis was longitudinal and transverse members in steel, with a pitch of 3.055 mm. The suspensions were rigid axle with leaf springs to three-quarters of both axes. The foot brake was tape and acted on the transmission. The maximum speed was 65 km / h.

As early as 1912, the range of 10/24 PS underwent a significant expansion, diversifying in particular from the point of view of chassis section, since they were introduced two new frames, from 3.23 and 3:38 m of distance. This created the opportunity to equip the car with a new engine, in different measures bore and stroke, which passed respectively from 80 to 84 mm and from 130 to 118 mm. The displacement remained almost unchanged, only 2 cm ³ more. The power instead went up to 25 hp. Therefore, the new car was called 10/25 PS.

And again, in 1913, there was a further review of mechanics, aimed at increasing the maximum power of the engine, which was identical to the one introduced the year before, but he came to deliver 30 bhp of maximum power at 1600 r / min and allowed to reach a maximum speed of 70 km / h. The new car was called 10/28 PS.

From 1911 to 1916, this car, in its three evolutions, has been proposed in different bodies, namely: torpedo, phaeton, limousines and Landaulet.

In 1916, when it was taken out of production, its place was taken by the sarebeb 12/34 PS, bigger engines.
