The 8/16 PS was a car of the medium-high produced by the carmaker German Opel in 1910.

The 8/16 PS was introduced at the beginning of 1910 as the heir of the family of 12PS, now off-list for more than three years. Compared to the cars in the family 12PS, the 8/16 PS was fitted with a new engine, a 4 -cylinder in-line cooled water head with cast iron crankcase and aluminum . This engine was displacement slightly lower than that of the progenitor: in fact fell from 1885 in 1847 cm ³, but it was more modern and more powerful. The distribution was side-valve and the power was maximum output of 16 hp at 1600 rev / min, compared to 12 hp at 1200 rpm of the progenitor. The transmission was a universal joint, while the exchange rate was a three-speed transmission. The chassis was a U-shaped structure in steel, with steel longeroghi always: here were laid the suspensions, which were rigid axle and three-quarter elliptic leaf springs on both axles. The braking system, as the vast majority of the cars at the time, was acting on the transmission. The 8/16 PS was available in three body variants: double- phaeton, limousine or even landaulet. It was produced until the end of 1910, to be replaced the following year by 8/20 PS, upper class.
