Buick fans disappointed that the forthcoming Regal GS shares little in common with the European market Insignia OPC now have another reason to get mad, after Opel revealed that their hottest sedan is good for an astounding 168 mph when the speed governor is removed.

Naturally, Opel is going to try and squeeze another buck out of consumers by offering an “Unlimited” trim level, with no speed governor and a 6-speed manual gearbox, blue painted Brembo brake calipers and special instrumentation. Frankly, it’s absurd to have a family sedan that can hit near-supercar speeds, but we wouldn’t complain if Opel tossed us the keys.

The 325 horsepower, all-wheel drive sedan might not be a good fit for Buick in North America, but on the velocity-happy roads of Germany, we can forsee a number of happy customers.
