The 30PS was a small family car produced by the high-end car manufacturer German Opel from 1922 to 1924.

Profile and History

In mid-1922, the Opel launched the first of two models constitute a small family of cars, called 30PS. Such models would have picked up the baton left by the 9/25 PS, out of production right in the middle of 1922, after six years of production.

The two models are part of that family were the last representatives of what the Germans called "Motorwagen", i.e. cars derived from the ancient remains closely horseless carriages and technically very anachronistic as early as the twenties .

The 9/30 PS

The first of these models was the 9/30, a model who shared the chassis and the whole mechanics with the 9/25 PS it replaced, but partly also with the cheapest 8M 21 of whom wanted to be a more refined.

On the same U-frame in steel were in fact mounted to two rigid axles and four semi-elliptic leaf springs.

The engine was a 4 -cylinder in-line of 2332 cm ³, the same mounted on the 9/25 PS, but slightly revised, so as to deliver 30 bhp of power up to 1600 rev / min.

It was produced until 1924.

The 10/30 PS

Parallel to the 9/30 PS, the House of Rüsselsheim launched on the market the 10/30 PS, elder sister of the first, with an engine displacement greater, 2577 cm ³, but the maximum power unchanged, a factor that allowed the 10/30 PS to excel more in regard to the torque . However, in this model it was also marketed a slightly more powerful version, called 10/35 PS engine with 35 hp.

Even the 10/30 PS was marketed until 1924.
