The 30/75 PS was a car produced by the great luxury carmaker German Opel from 1919 to 1924.

Profile and History

The 30/75 PS was the last car of great luxury of the House of Rüsselsheim: he went to meet the legacy inheritance received by the 29/70 PS, no longer in production since the end of 1914.

The 30/75 PS marked the end of Opel vehicles of great luxury and offering him a car with very specific technical solutions, at least in regard to the engine: it was in fact a 6-cylinder in line, but in fact it represented an evolution of the previous 4-cylinder engines with half-blocks aligned. If in previous engines each half-clutch contained a pair of cylinders, in the case of the 30/75 PS each half-clutch contained three cylinders each.

Together with the contemporary 21/55 PS, the 30/75 PS was the first Opel to fit a 6-cylinder. The distribution was still side-valve, while the displacement was 7793 cm ³, with a power of 80 hp at 1600 rev / min.

Were instead more traditional patterns of transmission (cardan shaft with two joints, clutch cone and change 4 speed) and frame solutions (chassis longitudinal and transverse members in steel, suspension rigid axle and semi-elliptic leaf springs and brake band on the exchange rate).

The 30/75 PS was available in three body variants: limousine, torpedo 7-seater body and a brand new sporty 4-seater. The maximum speed was 110 km / h.

The 30/75 PS was removed from production in 1924.
